The University of Chichester requires all written assignment submissions to be submitted as electronic copy and as a paper copy. The electronic copy is submitted into the module's Moodle page, via a service called Turnitin. Once submitted, Turnitin will generate an Originality Report, which will highlight any content which it considers as 'unoriginal'.
Highlighted, unoriginal content can take many forms:
- Text recognised from the internet
- Text recognised from journals
- Text recognised from previously submitted assignments
The Originality Report is there for you to use as a formative learning tool. Please check the highlighted text to make sure that, if required, it is correctly referenced.
The Similarity Score % is not a reflection of the quality of an assignment, and you are not aiming for a specific percentage.
Originality reports for first submissions should only take a few minutes, but resubmissions take up to 24 hours to be generated
