Turnitin produces a similarity score for each assignment, which makes it tempting to judge the quality of a piece of work on whether that number is over or under a threshold. In this session we'll look at what scores mean in terms of a student's academic writing and evaluate the merits of using such a cut-off. We'll then look at how you can discuss Turnitin similarity scores (and the mark up applied to the text of each submission) with your class to help students develop good academic practice and improve their writing skills.

This session is open to staff of the University of Glasgow. For the avoidance of doubt as to eligibility, it would be helpful if you could please register using your staff email address.
