FAQ Studying @ Wittenborg
Question:(Last edited: Monday, 17 January 2022, 3:47 PM)
Online Presentation: I am invited for an online presentation but I get an error message everytime I click to join the online meeting.
When you receive an outlook invitation you might receive the following message:
“A custom mail flow rule created by an admin at wittenborg.eu has blocked your message.”
Any time you receive an invitation in Microsoft Outlook or 365 and accept it, the invitation will be visible from then on in your calendar. Therefore, even if you close the window that pops up while you have accepted the invitation, you can always go to your Outlook calendar and join the communication channel again.
If the problem persists you may contact Helpdesk for further assistance.

Plagiarism/Turnitin Similarity Score: Does Turnitin show percentage of similarity and plagiarism? Or any highlighted area for plagiarism?
When a paper is submitted via Turnitin, an overall percentage of similarity or originality score (with colour code) is shown (see picture below). The similarity score is just a percentage of text in the student’s paper that matches sources in the Turnitin database. Turnitin does not detect nor check for plagiarism but it highlights the text in the student’s paper that is similar to or matches against another source. The picture below shows a Turnitin Originality Report in the Document Viewer window. On the right of the image, you will see a numbered list of matched sources. Each of these is allocated a colour and number and these correspond to the number and colour in the student’s text. A high percentage does not mean there is plagiarism and a low match score does not mean there is no plagiarism. However, a large percentage could indicate that the student has used too much from one source, or a direct copying of text from that source – see the red highlighted text numbered 1. A high percentage could also mean poor paraphrasing by student – see the pink highlighted text numbered 2. Both these high percentages are grounds for further investigation by the teacher on the student’s paper as direct copying and insufficient paraphrasing, even with proper referencing are considered as plagiarism.
At Wittenborg, up to 20% similarity is acceptable for all submissions through Turnitin as long as the submission is properly referenced as per Harvard referencing style. Above 20% but no more than 30% similarity must be motivated/justified by the student to be accepted for assessment. The 20% similarity does not automatically imply the submission is plagiarism-free as there could also be cases of plagiarism with less than 20% similarity. The submission must be properly referenced as per Harvard referencing style.

Similarity Report: How much time will Turnitin take to generate similarity report for my submitted file?
Students are eligible for a similarity report within 30 minutes (by standard) for the first three uploads of the assignment via Turn-it-in. However, from the 4th submission, the similarity report may take up to 24 hours to generate.
Students are strongly advised to upload their final reports at least 30 minutes before the deadline.

Submission Deadline: My submission deadline is at 16:00. How late can I submit my assignment on Turnitin?
Submissions of assignments just a few minutes before the deadline can be a risky issue. This is because it can take a few minutes before the system registers your uploaded work. Therefore, the student must always upload all assignments with sufficient time left in order for the work to be stamped in time. Submitting with sufficient time will also allow the student to correct any mistakes in the assignment. Consigning submissions at least 24 hours before the actual deadline may be a safe measure and can prevent any last-minute stress or failure of submissions.
For any technical reason for non-submission or failure to upload assignments, please contact your teacher and Helpdesk.

Turnitin Submissions: Why can't I upload my assignment on Turnitin while there is still sufficient time for the deadline?

Question:(Last edited: Friday, 14 January 2022, 4:41 PM)
Turnitin Upload: Why does the upload status show "processing" even after I have submitted my work?
If you are getting a status report "processing", it means your work has yet to be checked by Turnitin. Therefore, the work has been submitted but not yet checked. During the first 3 submissions, it takes anywhere between a few seconds to a few hours to see your report. It will take 24 to 48 hours for the 4th submission onward to reflect the report.
You can write to firstname.lastname@example.org or put a request to Helpdesk to share any further concerns.
