TURNITIN ASSESSMENT SUBMISSION
UOW’s Moodle elearning platform links to Turnitin, a web-based tool designed to educate
students about the importance of acknowledging sources and original authors. In addition,
Turnitin identifies material where the original source or author is not correctly or appropriately
acknowledged. The Turnitin system checks each student’s written assessment against
• on the Internet including sites such as Wikipedia,
• in published works (including ABI/Inform, Periodical Abstracts, Business dateline,
text books and electronic books),
• on commercial databases such as ProQuest and Gale, and
• in every assignment previously submitted to Turnitin
When a student submits his/her written assessment, Turnitin generates an ‘originality report’
that highlights the similarity found between the assessment and all other sources checked by
Turnitin. Turnitin checks that references are in the correct Harvard format but cannot check
alphabetical order. It is the student’s responsibility to check that all references follow the
author/date (Harvard) format detailed on http://www.library.uow.edu.au/referencing/.
Students are also required to address any areas of their assignment where high similarity
matches are identified, or where original authors are not acknowledged.
It is compulsory for SBS students to submit all written assignments (final version) into
the Turnitin Assignment in Moodle elearning system and check similarity before
finalising their online submission. The version in Turnitin must be the same as the
printed copy handed in. The use of information provided on websites established for
the purpose of sharing assessment task solutions can constitute plagiarism while
breaching copyright laws. Similarly, the provision of information to such sites can be
regarded as aiding plagiarism and breaching copyright. Requesting information or
copies of assessments or solutions from current or previously enrolled students may
also be interpreted as intent to breach student conduct rules and submit unoriginal
work. Such activities should be avoided as they can potentially represent student
academic misconduct and be subject to investigation and penalties.
