Turnitin: The Plagiarism Spectrum


The Plagiarism Spectrum

Turnitin compiled results from 879 instructors on the prevalence and problematic nature of various type of plagiarism in The Plagiarism Spectrum. The report was developed as a guide to help students identify inappropriate uses of source material and move plagiarism beyond the black-and-white definition of “literary theft” to one that captures the nuances of how plagiarism can take shape in student writing.

Turnitin provides The Plagiarism Spectrum in three convenient formats.  The information in each version is somewhat different.  The most detailed version is the White Paper.
