“ The implication is that, if Turnitin is primarily used as a policing tool,
students are not only denied access to nuanced pedagogical interventions that
might develop their academic writing, but its misuse could also change
students’ behavior in undesirable ways.”

“Jane Jacobs was forever taking on ambitious subjects from new directions,
marching imperturbably into all she didn’t know. She’d never understand, she
told an interviewer once, how other authors could ‘stand the boredom of just
writing down everything [they] already knew.’ But she paid the price for
indulging her insatiable curiosity. With each new book... ‘I always get scared
to death.’ Caught up in complexities of a new field not at first fully
apparent, ‘I realize it’s too deep for me, but I have to keep on with it.’
Until she gets it.”

I answered your survey. I am in charge of the IB Extended Essay, a 4000 word
research paper, and we run those essays through Turnitin, but not until they
are completed. I find it necessary to carefully review the Turnitin report
because much of what they claim is duplicated is actually OK. I still do find
it useful on occasion where it catches an uncited reference.

I hope all of you are well and grand. I was just asked to discuss Turnitin
with our faculty at a meeting this afternoon. I would love to hear your
thoughts. I have mixed feelings.
