Academic literacy and Plagiarism
Writing assignments can be both an enjoyable and challenging experience. One aspect of writing that students often struggle with is plagiarism: the unacknowledged presentation of another person’s thoughts, words, artefacts or software as though they were your own. This means that direct quotations from the published or unpublished works of others (including internet sources) must always be clearly identified as such by being placed inside quotation marks, and a full reference to their source must be provided in the proper form. Equally, if you summarise another person’s ideas or judgements, you must refer to that person in your text, and include the work to which you have referred in your bibliography. Failure to observe these rules may result in an allegation of plagiarism.
At UCL IOE we use Turnitin, a text-matching software tool, to help you to develop your own work so that you are writing in your own words, and also to scan for evidence of plagiarism.
Turnitin produces a Similarity Report or Originality Score which provides you with a percentage that indicates how much of your work matches other sources e.g. other essays on the internet, webpages, journal articles and published books.
All programmes at UCL IOE will give you access to Turnitin so that you can obtain a Similarity Report on one occasion before your final submission. You can then use this to discuss your work with your tutor to develop your academic writing and how you reference the work of others.
When you submit your final summative assessment you will be required to submit this to Turnitin through Moodle. Obviously some assessments such as presentations, software and videos are not amenable to submission through Turnitin.
As part of your programme of study you will be given opportunities to develop your skills and understanding to demonstrate good academic practice in your written assessed work. Your tutors will support you in this.
You might also with to make use of the Academic Writing Centre since they can provide further support and guidance concerning good academic practice and how to avoid plagiarism.
There are many useful resources on the UCL website:
You should also read:
