TurnItIn.com Information- U.S. History I TurnItIn.com is a tool that teachers can use to detect plagiarism. Throughout the year, written assignments that you complete for this class will need to be submitted to TurnItIn.com via the Internet, in addition to the physical assignment that you will hand in during class. 1) If I request you to submit a particular assignment to TurnItIn.com, that submission is a requirement of that assignment. I will not grade your assignment until I can read your TurnItIn.com report, and submitting your assignment to TurnItIn.com late will have the same consequences as turning in the assignment late. The TurnItIn.com submission will be due by the time your class meets the day the assignment is due. 2) When you submit your assignment to TurnItIn.com, it will check your work against several things (other student papers that have been submitted to TurnInIt.com, a collection of periodicals and other publications, and the Internet) to see if there are any matches. Matches between your work and any of those could possibly indicate plagiarism. After it completes the check, I will be able to view a report which will have highlighted all areas that are possibly plagiarized. I will consider each match to see whether or not it actually is plagiarism. My response to the plagiarism will depend on the amount and type of plagiarism present, but possible responses include asking the student to redo the assignment, deducting points, giving a zero for the assignment, and/or reporting it as a violation of the PHS Honor Code. 3) You will need to provide an email address with TurnItIn.com. During the year, I will use TurnItIn.com to send out emails to the class. Therefore it is important that you use a real email address, and that you update it if your email changes during the course of the year. 4) Make sure you submit the final version of your paper to TurnItIn.com. You can only submit your paper once, so please be sure it is your final version before you submit it. 5) TurnItIn will show a due date for each assignment, but it is often not be accurate. Please refer to the due dates on your homework calendar, not on TurnItIn.com How to Enroll in My Class and Submit a Paper 1.
