Using Turnitin Originality Reports and The Plagiarism Spectrum

Students are often unaware of what constitutes plagiarism. The Plagiarism Spectrum was designed to help students see how plagiarism is defined and can take form. The spectrum outlines the 10 most common types of plagiarism with easy to remember digital monikers. Having students review their Turnitin Originality Reports using the Plagiarism Spectrum can be an effective approach to educating students about what plagiarism looks like and to help them write with integrity.

Join us for this engaging workshop, where we’ll discuss the Plagiarism Spectrum and share different strategies for using the Spectrum with Turnitin Originality Reports, including a plagiarism quiz, lesson plan ideas, posters for the classroom and handouts.
