Types of “Assignments”
• Paper assignment is the base assignment for all other
assignments types. Used to obtain an Originality Report
• PeerMark assignment: allows students to review their
peers' papers based on scale and free response
questions selected by the instructor.
• Revision Assignment allows students to submit multiple
drafts without overwriting the previous
drafts/submissions
• Reflection Assignment is designed as a learning journal
where students write about what they learned from the
writing process as well as offer feedback on the
assignment they worked on.

Originality Check
It determines the congruence of text to
sources in:
• Publicly accessible Internet sources
• Every document already submitted to Turnitin*
• Assignments from within the class
* Lecturers can opt out from Turnitin storing papers. Only the lecturer
can access the submitted paper.

plagiarism detection

Possible Scenario
A lecturer (or student who has access to it)
receives an originality report showing a match for
the following passage:
Today, according to authors of The Death of “e” and the Birth of the
Real New Economy doing business electronically is the only way to stay
alive and competitive. It is a necessity to get involved in the digital
economy. Therefore, “e” is disappearing from our vocabulary because
conducting business electronically is a normal, every-day activity.
Upon clicking on the comparison link, you find
that the text is found in an on-line article, entitled
The Death of “e” and the Birth of the Real New
Economy.
Is this plagiarism or a false positive? Why?

Teaching advice
• Use it proactively
• Notify and explain to your students
• Clear plagiarism policy: definition, avoidance,
guidelines and disciplinary process.
• Help students develop writing skills.

Using Turnitin with Sulis
From September 2011, Sulis and Turnitin are
integrated, meaning
• No need to create lecturer or students
accounts
• When students submit into the Assignment tool
in Sulis, a Turnitin report can be generated
• Instructors may also choose to allow students
to view the reports

Peermark
Allows students to read, review, and evaluate one or many papers
submitted by their classmates. Instructors can choose whether the
reviews are anonymous or attributed, decide if students should be
excluded from reviews, pair students, and assign students specific
papers to review.
8:23
28
Peermark (2)
Create new assignment as in slide 13, and select PeerMark Assignment (can
only be created if a class has at least one paper assignment created)
Note: the due date of the base assignment must come before the
start date and time of the PeerMark assignment. If anonymity in the
review is desired, student submissions should not contain the name
of the author in the text or at the top of the paper
By default, reviews are anonymous and only those
student who submit can review, but you can
change it in “Show more options”
The start date is the date students can begin
reading papers and writing reviews. The due date
prevents students from writing reviews after this
date. The post date is the date students will have
access to reviews written by their classmates
29
Peermark (3)
In Step 2, the instructor determines how many papers will be distributed to the
students in the course. By default, PeerMark will automatically distribute papers
to students
Click Save & Continue or click on the Show more distribution options link to
exclude student papers from distribution or specify which student papers a
student(s) will have to review.
Note: you need to have students registered as seen in slide 19
In Step 3, add questions for students to answer (your own or from Sample Library)
30
Peermark (4)
After the start date of the PeerMark assignment students may begin writing peer
reviews. To view which papers students have reviewed click on the View link next
to the PeerMark assignment.
Instructors can then view an individual
student’s reviews by clicking on the Show
details link to the right of the students name.
The instructor can write a review to supplement those that students will receive
from their peers. An instructor may also comment on the paper they are
reviewing. A comment is equivalent to the notes that an instructor may write in
the margins of a paper
Instructors may grade
the reviews written by
the students
31
Peermark (5)
Instructors may view a paper’s peer reviews within the document viewer once a
reviewer submits a PeerMark review. To view a paper in the document viewer click
on the paper’s title within the assignment inbox for the paper assignment the peer
review is based on.
32
Peermark (6)
To view the PeerMark questions and answers click on ? icon.
To view a list of all the comments left on the paper click on the mark list icon.
To grade a reviewer click on the reviewer’s name, or to edit the grade click on
the grade next to the reviewer’s name.
