Summary of Teaching & Learning Context
Working to support academic writing skills across the whole
university, an instructional video on how to use the information
presented in a Turnitin feedback report was developed.
Students are often asked to review their work for possible
plagiarism. However, anecdotal evidence suggested that
students do not always know how this can be achieved.
The issue of identifying text similarity matches has been
addressed by adding a non-repository Turnitin upload
practice link on the Academic Writing Skills Moodle resource
page. Students can use this link to generate a feedback
report on a draft of an assignment they are writing prior to
submitting the assignment for their module.
