Students Dread the "P" Word: Is Turnitin® Good for Plagiarism Detection and Feedback?
Krishnan, Rathi
NADE Digest, v8 n1 p39-41 Fall 2016
This paper is based on a presentation made at NADE 2016, in Anaheim, California, entitled "Turnitin--An Extraordinary Teaching and Feedback Tool in the Writing Classroom" which discussed the value and benefits of using Turnitin (TII), a subscription-based software/website available to universities that serves as an audio-visual feedback tool, a plagiarism checker, and a self- monitoring tool to assist in creating correct citation and producing original work by students in all courses requiring writing and research. TII is a valuable resource, not only as a plagiarism checker, but also as an extraordinary tool for giving comprehensive feedback on papers, including audio feedback. Students consistently report how much they value the feedback they receive using TII. This paper will discuss the use of TII to grade effectively including the use of comment banks and Quick Marks, incorporating custom rubrics, and providing audio feedback. Narrative experience of students and faculty using TII at Kaplan University will also be discussed.
