Frequently Asked Questions about Turnitin for Students

Will my work be submitted to Turnitin?

Curtin policy requires all text based assignments to be submitted to Turnitin, and all academic staff have access to Turnitin, so there is a good chance that an assignment in one of your units will be submitted to Turnitin. A copy of all work submitted to Turnitin will normally be retained on Turnitin's database for future text matching. This process has been tested in the courts and found to be in compliance with copyright, privacy and data protection laws. For Australian institutions, Turnitin has obtained a legal opinion .pdf file from Blake Dawson Waldron, one of Australia's leading international law firms, to ensure compliance with Australian copyright and privacy laws.

What if I do not want my work retained by Turnitin?

The effectiveness of Turnitin depends on its ability to store copies of all documents submitted to it. This has the benefit of protecting a student's rights and intellectual property in the future. Under exceptional circumstances (such as in situations where the work is commercially sensitive) a student may request that a paper be removed from the database. Undergraduate work would not be expected to fall into this category under normal circumstances. If a student believes that exceptional circumstances apply in their situation, they should make a formal request explaining their reasons to their Unit Coordinator in the first instance. Unit Coordinators may refer cases to the Curtin Learning and Teaching for advice.

What if I do not want my work retained by Turnitin?

The only people able to view the copy of your assignment submitted to the Turnitin database, or the associated originality report, are the teaching team associated with that unit of study (Unit Coordinator, tutors, markers). Turnitin's employees are not able to view your assignment.

How will markers use the Originality Report?

The person marking your submitted work will review the Originality Report generated by the Turnitin service. The report highlights text in your submitted work that matches content in Turnitin's databases. The marker will review each highlighted passage of text to determine if the passage has been poorly paraphrased or if it has been directly copied from another source, and whether this indicates plagiarism. The report also includes an index (the Similarity Index) calculated as the number of highlighted words divided by the total number of words in your assignment. A high Similarity Index is not automatically interpreted by the marker as plagiarism, and Curtin does not define any minimum or maximum thresholds for the index score.  This means that there is no 'safe' score nor is there a score that, if exceeded, indicates that plagiarism has occured. The detection of plagiarism is a matter of academic judgement by the marker, allowing and requiring them to take into consideration the type of match highlighted, the extent of matching and the use in-text citations and references.

Turnitin accessibility information

The Turnitin web pages include some graphics, buttons and icons, to guide the student through the submission process and for various functions associated with viewing the originality report and accessing the digital receipt. Normally these visual elements have hidden text behind them to allow screen readers to function.

Students using a screen reader may find that the Turnitin Document Viewer is not fully compatible with their software. The Document Viewer is the default view for the Originality Report, it appears in a separate browser window that is launched when you access your submission from the Turnitin Assignment Inbox. The 'text-only' view of the Originality Report is generally more compatible with screen reader technologies.

To access the 'text-only' view follow these steps:

  1. In your Blackboard unit navigate to the assignment submission page and select the link labelled View/Complete to show the Turnitin page

  2. The Turnitin page has two tabs, make sure the Assignment Inbox tab is active (this is selected by default) and for the appropriate assignment in the list select the View button

  3. Turn on the originality view (There are three views available, these are labelled: 1) Originality 2) GradeMark and 3) PeerMark.

  4. Select the Text-Only Report link (this link is not visible or available unless the originality view is enabled, revisit step 3 to ensure that the originality view is enabled)

From the preferences link the text-only report provides the following options that may improve accessibility:

  • colour code matches 1) Yes or 2) No

  • default mode 1) show highest matches together 2) show matches one at a time 3) quickview (classic) report

  • auto-navigation 1) jump to next match 2) scroll to next match

Note: Turnitin remembers the last view used to access the originality report, so when you open another report the view used last will be displayed.  In this way, you can set the default to be Document Viewer or Text Only.
