Assessed work will routinely be using the Turnitin Detection System. This means that for all assessed coursework (other than regular language work) you will be required to submit the following by the deadline:
- An electronic copy via a dedicated Moodle course.
The Turnitin System is designed to detect examples of plagiarism in student work, and this policy is in line with UCL Best Practice. On UCL’s plagiarism policy, see the SELCS webpage Plagiarism and non-Originality.
The system works as follows:
- All MA programmes have a dedicated Moodle course labelled ‘...Submission of Assessed Coursework 2013-14’. This will be visible to you whenever you login to Moodle using your UCL userid.
- When you enter the dedicated Moodle site you will see a list of MA programmes, module codes and titles.
- Click on the module for which you need to submit coursework. You will see information about the submission deadline and, at the top of the page, a tab labelled ‘My Submissions’.
- To submit your work, type your candidate ID and the essay title into the box, browse your files and find the correct one; read the ‘Declaration of Ownership’ and click on the box if you are able to confirm all four points; then click on ‘Add Submission’ to upload your file.
- You will automatically receive an email to your UCL account confirming that you have successfully submitted your work.
- Within an hour you should be able to view the ‘Similarity Score and Originality Report’ on your work. For Guidance on submitting work via Turnitin in Moodle and interpreting this information, click here.
- You may resubmit your work electronically up to the deadline, as long as there is a gap of at least 24 hours between submissions. Late submissions will be accepted but will be identified as late.
Assessed work is submitted using the Turnitin Detection System. The Turnitin System is designed to detect examples of plagiarism in student work, and this policy is in line with UCL Best Practice. On UCL’s plagiarism policy, see the Plagiarism section.
The system works as follows:
- Submissions for all CMII and SELCS MA programmes have a dedicated Moodle site labelled ‘SELCS/EMS/CMII MA Programmes: Coursework Submission 2015-2016’. You can see the link whenever you log in to Moodle using your UCL user ID.
- When you enter the Moodle site you will see a tabs at the top with names of MA programmes. Please select the relevant MA programme from the tabs on the top of the page. You will then see a list of assignments for different modules. Click on the link for your assignment.
- At the bottom right of the page, click ‘Submit paper’.
- You must accept the ‘Turnitin User Agreement’. This will come up in a pop-up window – if your browser blocks pop-ups, please ensure that you allow pop-ups for moodle.ac.uk. Clicking on the link starting ‘You must accept…’ will take you into a new tab or window of your browser. At the bottom of this page, headed ‘Turnitin User Agreement’, press ‘I agree – continue’. The page will confirm that you have agreed, and should then close automatically.
- The Moodle site will automatically take you through to the ‘Submit paper’ page.
- Your ‘Submission title’ must include your candidate ID. Please do not put your name or student number anywhere on your coursework.
- Upload your essay as a single file to the box under ‘File to submit’, either by dragging and dropping the file into the box, or using the ‘File picker’ button (the icon in the top left corner of the box). When the ‘File picker’ box appears, choose the option ‘Upload a file’ at the top of the list in the top left.
- To submit your work, click the blue ‘Add submission’ button in the bottom left corner.
- You should receive an email confirmation from Turnitin once your submission has been received.
- Soon after submitting you should be able to view the ‘Similarity Score and Originality Report’ on your work. For Guidance on submitting work via Turnitin in Moodle and interpreting this information, click here.
There is a detailed description (with screenshots) of how to submit your coursework available on the Coursework Submissions Site and on the elearning site.
Please only submit via Turnitin, you do not have to submit a hard copy for any of the CMII/SELCS assignments.
