Some assignments in Ember are set up to utilize Turnitin software. This software provides an Originality checker, and a markup tool (Grademark). These tools are detailed below.
Assignments utilizing Turnitin are denoted as "Turnitin enabled" within the assignment prompt, and show special icons in the gradebook and SpeedGrader.
The Originality report usually takes about 5-15 minutes to generate and will be available to students after it is graded by the instructor, and will be indicated by a grey stopwatch icon in the SpeedGrader submission view, while loading:
Once the originality report is ready, the grey stopwatch option will be replaced by a colored icon indicating the percentage of similar text found in the submission. The color will vary depending on the percentage of similar text found:
- blue - no matching text
- green - one word to 24% matching text
- yellow - 25-49% matching text
- orange - 50-74% matching text
- red -75-100% matching text
This icon will be available in the SpeedGrader , without the percent in the Gradebook , and in the individual student assignment view .
The Originality Checker performs textual comparison with Turnitin's database of live and archived internet documents, a local repository of previously submitted papers, and subscription repository of periodicals, journals, and publications, and generates an Originality Report. The Originality Report is provided to both instructors and students, and provides a summary of matching or similar areas of text found in a submitted paper, along with a percentage of similar or matching text. More information on the TurnItIn Originality Report is available here.
