Workshop summary
An overview of Turnitin, with a focus on the marking and feedback tools. Aimed at those involved with marking and feedback of student work submitted via Turnitin and may also be of interest to those considering moving from Safe Assign to Turnitin.

This two hour session will focus on:
• Brief overview of Turnitin.
• What Turnitin can do.
• What it’s not so good at.
• Understanding similarity (originality) reports.
• Using grading / feedback tools
• Introduction to developing rubrics/grading forms.
• A brief look at administrative tasks (e.g. setting up assignments)
We intend to allow time for academics to discuss issues of plagiarism and marking online generally, so the actual session is flexible.
If you would like to experiment with marking via an iPad, then please bring one (either with the latest Turnitin App installed, or one that you have the ability to install apps on: N.B. App not currently available [June 2017] for other platforms ).
As we will be in a computer lab, you’ll get the chance to “have a go” on some dummy assignments.

Aims and Objectives
• To know the range of assessment types that work well with Turnitin – and those that don’t.
• To understand a typical similarity report, particularly common errors students make.
• To investigate the range of options for feedback, and to select those that are the most appropriate for the particular assignment.
• To know where to locate resources for further information as required.
