  • You will also see a question that automatically defaults to “yes” for “Generate originality reports for submissions?”Keep this as “yes” if this assignment is for the final version of a student’s essay.

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.

  • The material in the student’s paper that may be plagiarized will be color-coded to that same material from another source that shows up to the right of the essay.
  • If the student has used material from multiple sources, each source will be a different color.
  • You can click on the color-coded material in the student paper and see the borrowed material highlighted in the same color to the right of the paper—and you can see what percentage of the student’s paper is from each outside source.

  • If you wish, you can also print the student’s essay plus all the other sites that appear.

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.

warning about originality reports
Warning About Originality Reports
  • NOTE: If a student is quoting from well-known literature, and these same quotes appear in other students’ submitted papers or elsewhere on the internet, you may see an originality report for that essay that suggests the student plagiarized—even if he/she properly used that material. You can “exclude” certain sources by clicking on the “X” icon to the right of an outside source’s URL address.
