IST Professional Development Seminar
 
Topic:     Turnitin: Plagiarism Screening Software
Date:      Friday February 15, 2008
Time:      9:00 am - 9:45 am
Room:      MC 2009

Turnitin is a plagiarism prevention system/electronic screening software,
among other things, that is currently being used in some Accounting courses
this term, as a pilot project. Turnitin is part of a number of initiatives
to  enhance academic integrity on campus. This is partially in response  to
comments from students on the academic integrity survey in October 2006 that
UW should do more to ensure a 'level playing' field for all students in
terms of assignments and examinations. This session will review the project
and its feedback so far and demonstrate the software.
