If your professor has asked that you submit a paper to Turnitin.com, you can use these instructions. If you have difficulty using Turnitin, please contact your professor directly.
FAQs from SJU Academic Technology:
- What is Turnitin?
- How do I use Turnitin without violating FERPA?
- Can faculty require students to use Turnitin by having students submit their papers directly to Turnitin?
- When do student papers become “educational records” subject to FERPA restrictions?
- If I submit papers to Turnitin myself, can I use student ID numbers in place of names?
- Does the statement below from Turnitin's website apply to Saint Joseph's University? (http://turnitin.com/en_us/privacy-center/legal-faqs)
- Should we be including a statement in our syllabus regarding the anti-plagiarism services we are using?
- Must I give students the chance to opt in/out from in using Turnitin?
- I wonder if we are over thinking this. I think that there are cases where if a student has agreed to proceed with the course and its requirements as outlined on the syllabus (I mention to my students that I may use Turnitin although I have not had a case where I did it) then consent in assumed. By attending SJU or any other private school they have agreed to play by the rules of the school. Would this not be the same for the purposes of FERPA?
- What specific steps can faculty take without violating FERPA?
- How do I generate Turnitin "Originality Reports"?
