Information about the plagiarism detection software for open-book exams - Turnitin
- Turnitin reporting is automatically turned on for each open-book exam. Students do NOT receive notification of their Turnitin report for each exam response submission.
- As previously, departments are responsible for checking the authenticity of the work each student has submitted for open-book exams using Turnitin, referring to the automatically generated reports in the Weblearn open-book site for the relevant paper. This is because departments, in conjunction with the exam boards, are in the best position to recognise potential collusion or plagiarism. The use of this type of screening provides our students with confidence on the integrity of the open-book exam.
- Further information and guidance on how to use and obtain access to Turnitin is available from IT website. Any Turnitin queries that are specific to open-book exams can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
