Welcome to Massey University's web page about Turnitin. You will find here all you need to know about using Turnitin @ Massey - an etool to support academic integrity in learning, teaching and research.
Turnitin is a web-based solution for managing writing assignments. It is made up of three applications: Originality Check for text matching, GradeMark for online marking and PeerMark for online Peer reviewing. Since 2003, Massey University has had a site licence for Turnitin: Originality Check and it now is a seamless plug-in to Stream.
Many of you are aware of the increasing difficulties educational institutions are having dealing with issues of plagiarism. This problem impacts on students as it disadvantages honest students, undermines the credibility of the qualification, and takes up huge staffing resources to investigate potential academic misconduct. Turnitin: Originality Checking is a tool that can help to address this and when used appropriately can reduce this problem. It also can be used to encourage proper citation and intellectual honesty, and provide a check for academic integrity in research.
Massey University has a strong commitment to academic integrity and any form of plagiarism is viewed seriously by this University. Plagiarism is defined by Massey University as:
Presenting as one’s own work the work of another, including copying or paraphrasing of another’s work without acknowledging it as another person’s work through full and accurate referencing. It applies to material presented through written, spoken, electronic, broadcasting, visual, performance or other medium.
