NOTE: If you also want students to submit earlier drafts of a paper to turnitin.com BEFORE they submit their final version, you must choose “no” for generating originality reports for a draft assignment. Otherwise, you’ll see later that students have “plagiarized” their final drafts from their earlier drafts.
[Note: Blue means the work is the student’s own, and warm colors up to red mean the student has used material that has appeared in the internet or in other students’ submitted papers.]
Note: If you find that a student has plagiarized an essay, you probably should make copies of the paper and its sources. Some VWCC division deans will want you to submit these documents so they can be placed on file for that student. If a student is found guilty of two instances of plagiarism, he/she will go before the Student Disciplinary Committee for further sanctions.
