I’m excited to announce that we have partnered with TurnItIn, a powerful plagiarism detector and feedback tool.
Unfortunately with the information available on the Internet, cheating is becoming easier and more tempting. We believe that for high schoolers, this is an educational moment. Now that we are better able to detect plagiarism we will be able to work with students and families once the first incident occurs.
I am most excited about launching TurnItIn’s feedback tool. With this, teacher feedback will be more efficient, precise, and useful. Teachers will have access to a wide variety of rubrics and preloaded comments, with the ability to edit right into the document rather than try to express their feedback in a separate comment box.
We look forward to your feedback and the student perspective as you start seeing it appear in your courses!
