Turnitin for students

The University subscribes to the Turnitin originality checking service. The service is provided for use at the discretion of all academic staff and is most appropriate for text-based work.

‘The University of Auckland will not tolerate cheating, or assisting others to cheat, and views cheating in coursework as a serious academic offence. The work that a student submits for grading must be the student’s own work, reflecting his or her learning. Where work from other sources is used, it must be properly acknowledged and referenced. This requirement also applies to sources on the world-wide web. A student’s assessed work may be reviewed against electronic source material using computerised detection mechanisms. Upon reasonable request, students may be required to provide an electronic version of their work for computerised review.’

Students requiring information or help with Turnitin should contact their lecturer or consult the Turnitin AskAuckland information.
