Turnitin - Teaching Tools

Turnitin - Teaching Tools | technologies | Scoop.it
Turnitin is the leading academic plagiarism detector, utilized by teachers and students to avoid plagiarism and ensure academic integrity.
John Dalziel's insight:

30 percent of papers graded in Turnitin in 2013, were graded using rubrics.
Teaching Tools provides a way for practitioners to both share the rubrics and lesson plans they've developed and gather valuable materials to apply in their own learning environments.
Plus, with the launch of our Grade Anything functionality, practitioners are now able to evaluate learner work across the curriculum for any type of assignments—presentations, science, maths and more.
The repository of sample rubrics and assignments offers a practical resource for practitioners looking for ideas, and who don't want to waste time reinventing pedagogical wheels.
All the items submitted are published under a Creative Commons license, which allows others to use, copy, distribute, and adapt.

A website dedicated to informing learners and their practitioners of copyright law, plagiarism policies, and caveats in order to uphold literary integrity and digital ethics through a compilation of various media.

John Dalziel's insight:

The Essential Questions...

The Plagiarism Checker

The Plagiarism Checker | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Sometimes learners get lazy and use the web in ways that are inappropriate in an academic setting - i.e. by plagiarising work from web sources.
Even though the benefits of the web far outweigh the risk of inappropriate use, as educators, we should strive to train our learners on acceptable web behaviour.
This includes the habits of summarising, quoting, and citing sources. Despite our best efforts, some students choose to bend/break the rules of fair use.
"The Plagiarism Checker", from dustball.com, is a free, simple, program for practitioners,learners. other stakeholders.

 

Practitioners: Just...
- paste in text from a suspect paper and The Plagiarism Checker will quickly perform a Google search of multiple portions of the submitted text in an effort to find matches.

 

Learners: Just...
- paste in text from your paper, before submission, and The Plagiarism Checker will quickly perform a Google search of multiple portions of the submitted text in an effort to find matches.

 

NOTE: The basic service is free to use. A more advanced and, in their words, accurate checker is available for $8/month.

 

NOTE: Papers are not be stored for any purpose. Some other sites do make a copy of the paper.
