» Plagiarism Declaration for Online Submission

There is an important aspect for staff who require students solely use Turnitin online submission without any hard copies: “part of the assessment front cover sheet was to have the student make a specific declaration that the work submitted was their own and they have referenced the sources. If this is not now the case when work is submitted online where does that leave us w-r-t university regulations and related disciplinary/appeals processes?”

Therefore, it is suggested that the plagiarism declaration statement needs to be included when staff set up a Turnitin submission link through Blackboard. In the Turnitin setup page, under the column “Enter Special instructions”, feel free to use the following instruction with the plagiarism declaration:

------------

Use this link to submit your assignment. Full details for the requirements of this assignment can be found on this page in the file titled ‘Coursework Guidance’. Shortly after you have submitted your assignment via the View/Complete link you will be able to use this same link to view your originality report. By submitting your assignment through the following link, you have agreed to declare that this assignment is your own work and that the sources of information and material you have used (including the internet) have been fully identified and properly acknowledged as required in the referencing guidelines provided.

------------

Note: please change/remove the sentence “Full details for the requirements of this assignment can be found on this page in the file titled ‘Coursework Guidance’” to suit your needs.

This declaration will be inserted to the new user guides for online submission and will be published soon by LCSS. Please also see the enclosed screen shot for further details.

» NEW features for Turnitin upon request!

On September 1, Turnitin is pleased to announce the release of a few new frequently requested features:

1. Shortcut from Inbox to Modify Assignment Settings
Instructors can now access assignment settings directly from the inbox for that assignment, instead of modifying individual settings for each paper, or having to navigate back to the assignment settings panel.

2. Progress Bar for Zip File Uploads
In addition to recent improvements to the overall process for file submissions (the limit for individual files has increased from 10MB to 20MB, and the zip file limit has increased from 100MB to 200MB), a progress bar now indicates the progress of the submission of a zip file.

3. More Languages
Over a dozen new features have been released in the past 2 months, including 9 new languages! Turnitin and GradeMark are now available in Spanish, German, French, Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), Japanese, Korean, Thai and Malay.

See a complete list of new features [here] .

As a instructor, you can also give your suggestion [here] .
