Turnitin

Turnitin is a program within ARK that is used for assignment submission, originality checking and online marking. Turnitin is mandated for the submission of all written assessment with the possible exception of short papers (500–700 words), if instructed by the lecturer. The originality check and text-matching feature of Turnitin enables students to review reference material and check citations. After final submission, this feature assists lecturers to identify incorrect referencing, citation and suspicion of plagiarism.

Return of assignments: 

  • During semester, assignments are either handed back by lecturers or are available online through Turnitin via the ARK Learning Management System. Lecturers will advise their intention to mark online or in hard copy in the unit outline.
  • After the semester has ended, hard copy assignments are available for collection from the Academic Records Office (proof of ID required). Assignments marked online will be available via ARK.
