We just got some good news from Turnitin. If any of the following items have irritated you in the past, they have some answers…
- Manage collusion with confidence
You asked: My institution’s academic integrity policy specifies that potential collusion should be dealt with by a central administrator, rather than by instructors. Can Turnitin help?
We answered: Yes! We’ve added the option to email all requests to view potentially plagiarized papers to an administrator of your choice, so you can control the investigation process with confidence. Learn more→
- Crisp, clear view of student work.
You asked: When I zoom in on a student’s paper, it looks a bit fuzzy. Can you fix that?
We answered: We’re sharpening the resolution of student papers to make reading them easier on the eyes of hard-working instructors. Look for changes in mid-July.
- No more waiting for grammar feedback!
You asked: Give students immediate grammar feedback so they can revise and improve their papers before teachers review their work.
We answered: We’ve deepened our partnership with ETS to make e-rater® grammar guidance available to students as soon as they submit a draft starting in mid-July. Instructors will still be able to choose whether to turn e-rater® on or off for each assignment. Learn more→
- Peer review, simplified
You asked: PeerMark assignments are great, but creating them is far from intuitive. Can you simplify it?
We answered: Instructors, get ready for fewer steps in PeerMark assignment creation. Students, get ready to see your peer feedback as soon as your classmates complete it. *Note: For now, these PeerMark changes will apply only to native accounts starting in mid-July, but we look forward to extending them to LMS/VLE customers (that’s us!) soon.
