Submitting assessed work
Since November 2010 all SELCS departments and programmes have used the Turnitin Detection System. This means that for all assessed coursework (other than regular language work) students are required to submit an electronic copy of assessed coursework via a dedicated Moodle site.
This applies at undergraduate level to all modules offered by the departments of Dutch, French, German, Italian, Scandinavian Studies, and Spanish and Latin American Studies, as well as to ELCS modules and to the core modules for BA Language and Culture.
The Turnitin System detects plagiarism. Its implementation in line with UCL Best Practice. For UCL’s plagiarism policy, see the School webpage Plagiarism and non-Originality.
(If you are unable to submit your work by the deadline because of circumstances beyond your control, you may be entitled to apply for an extension to your deadline.)
Submission of assessed work in SELCS observes the following routine:
- Each SELCS department or academic programme has a dedicated Turnitin Moodle site labelled ‘Submission of Assessed Coursework 2012-13’. These sites are visible when you login to Moodle.
- The dedicated Turnitin Assignments will be open for coursework submission one week before the deadline.
- On entering one of these dedicated Moodle sites, you will see a list of module codes and titles.
- Click on the module for which you need to submit coursework. You will see information about the submission deadline, etc and, at the top of the page, a tab labelled ‘My Submissions’.
- To submit your work, type your candidate number, the module code and the question number for your coursework into the box (do not write your name or student number), browse your files and find the correct one. Read the ‘Declaration of Ownership’ and click on the box if you are able to confirm all four points; then click on ‘Add Submission’ to upload your file.
- Do not write your name or student number (i.e., the number shown on your student ID card) on your essay. Essays must marked anonymously. Use your candidate number which can be found from Your Student Record Container and through the link Summary of your student record – results and awards. Candidate numbers change every year so please make sure that you enter your number for the current year.
- You will automatically receive an email to your UCL account confirming that you have successfully submitted your work.
- Within an hour you will be able to see the ‘Similarity Score and Originality Report’ on your work. For Guidance on submitting work via Turnitin in Moodle and interpreting this information, see the UCL pages Guidance for UCL students submitting work in Turnitin via Moodle.
- You may resubmit your work electronically up to the deadline, as long as there is a gap of at least 24 hours between submissions. Late submissions will be accepted but will be identified as late.
