To submit manuscripts:
Class passwords may also be used when peer review is enabled.
"Peer Review" is a new auxiliary feature of our Turnitin.com service, offered free-of-charge to our registered clients. When enabled by an instructor, submitted papers are posted anonymously online and can be accessed by students using the class password (formerly the 'Upload Password'). By allowing students to view others' work, they are able to evaluate and learn from the composition of their colleagues. Since these papers have been uploaded to Turnitin.com, the instructor is guaranteed that they will never be recycled for plagiarism purposes.
"Peer review" can be activated at either of two stages:
1. Enabling upon initial use of the 'Add Class' feature
Classes are added to Turnitin.com starting at: http://www.Turnitin.com/add.html.
At the class addition page, the administrator must complete the informational fields related to his/her specific class.
The "Peer Review" feature is set at 'Disable'. If an instructor would like the function enabled, the following steps must be followed:
An e-mail confirmation of the 'Class Addition' will be sent to the instructor's e-mail address for all additions. An addendum will be added to this confirmation if the "Peer Review" feature is enabled.
2. Enabling (or Disabling) with the 'Update Class' feature
An instructor may always change peer review status by updating class information at http://www.Turnitin.com/update.html (see the 'Using Teacher Passwords For Class Maintenance' section for specific instructions).
At the class update page, the instructor may elect to either 'Enable' the "Peer Review" feature (following the same steps outlined above) or 'Disable' the "Peer Review" feature.
An e-mail confirmation of the 'Class Update' will be sent to the instructor's e-mail address for all additions. An addendum will be added to this confirmation if the "Peer Review" feature is enabled or disabled.
Accessing the "Peer Review" feature
The "Peer Review" feature can be accessed from the 'Student' section of Turnitin.com. [If you have not enabled this feature, the following steps alone WILL NOT allow entry into this section.]
To view peer review manuscripts:
The "Peer Review" section is comprised of a list of links to all papers submitted to a class. By clicking on a paper's title, students view the "Title", "Assignment Number", "Abstract"(if any), "Manuscript", and "Bibliography" (if any) of the upload.
Students DO NOT view the "Originality Reports" of the papers (with completed document source analysis) at this section. Only instructors can access these reports at: http://www.Turnitin.com/view.html (see the following 'Viewing Reports' section for specific instructions).
GUIDELINE TO "PEER REVIEW" USAGE
The "Peer Review" feature can be customized to supplement various syllabi. However, to ensure proper use of "Peer Review", the following guideline should be adhered to.
The 'View Reports' function allows instructors to access detailed originality reports using their teacher password. Each matching phrase, paragraph or section of the uploaded assignment is underlined and color-coded to provide the instructor with a comprehensive document analysis, including working hyperlinks to Internet sites containing matching text and further contact information for matches to papers found within our database.
To view reports at Turnitin.com:
Reports may be viewed for 180 days after the archive date after which point they are no longer accessible via the Internet.
To request a copy of annual report indices (a CD-ROM containing all reports per year), contact our Sales Department for pricing information at email@example.com.
This section contains information only applicable to instructors who require their students to submit their assignments directly to Turnitin.com.
We will do our best to guarantee that papers submitted through our web site are the same papers that are actually turned in to the course. However, instructors should make certain to cross-reference originality reports to the actual hard copy manuscripts collected in class.
For smaller classes, we recommend having the original manuscript in hand while comparing it to the reports generated through Turnitin.com. Instructors for larger, lecture courses who do not have the capacity to check each paper against originality reports generated should at the very least audit a working percentage of assignments turned in. For example, an instructor might examine 10% of the manuscripts handed in against their corresponding originality reports. Make certain to not only look at papers with matching reports that have high levels of matches, but also check papers with lower scores, to ensure that the spectrum of manuscript submissions are consistent.
Your account administrator has agreed to terms of web usage that include releasing e-mail contact information to third-party instructors or administrators (potentially from another academic institution) related to matching text between two manuscripts. For proper usage of Turnitin.com, you should be aware of these terms and agree to them. Conversely, you will also be able to contact other third-party instructors and administrators regarding text matches. Following is an example of a possible release of your e-mail address.
You have uploaded Paper X through our system. Two months later, another individual loads Paper Y to our system. Paper Y's originality report contains a match to Paper X. Unlike matches found on the web, we cannot release the text of Paper X to Paper Y's administrator or instructor. Instead, they will receive your e-mail address along with the paper's title and unique identification number. It is up to you determine whether to cooperate in their research of the papers' matching text.
If you are unwilling to have e-mail correspondences sent to you in this manner, please provide an alternative e-mail address in the class addition field. However, you will not be able to receive important information related to Turnitin.com usage, such as updated functions and promotions.
Our 'Privacy Pledge' at: http://Turnitin.com/pledge.html provides more detailed information regarding our disclosure of e-mail addresses.
