Turnitin and Academic Misconduct workshops

Register for upcoming Turnitin and Academic Misconduct workshops running over the next two weeks. Learn about interpreting originality reports, the AI Detection Tool and reporting allegations of academic misconduct. 

Are you confident in your use of Turnitin?

Turnitin can be a valuable tool if you are aware of how to use and interpret its functions effectively. It serves as an educational tool for students, and while most people are aware of the text matching function (similarity report), Turnitin can assist you to detect academic misconduct in other ways. 

For example, by mastering Turnitin, you can learn how to distinguish between text matches that are related to academic misconduct and those that are not. Turnitin also offers features to identify potential academic misconduct, including flagging ‘hidden text’ or ‘replaced characters’, there is also a relatively new artificial intelligence (AI) tool.

Understanding how to appropriately interpret the AI indicator tool will increase the value of the information it provides and improve marking proficiency.
