Plagiarism and Technology

The University has policies to address academic integrity, plagiarism, source-matching and cheating.

It is important to support students in their understanding of academic integrity and also to design and deliver assessments to minimise the opportunity for plagiarism.

The University used to provide a tutorial for students called PLATO. That tutorial is now out of date and has been decommissioned. There is a student tutorial run by the library called Plagiarwise.

Warwick subscribes to a tool called Turnitin that provides a "source-matching" function on text-based assignments. Turnitin compares uploaded assignments to a huge bank of texts from thousands of other institutions. It is integrated with Tabula, Moodle and MyWBS assignment management.

Guidance on its use is available through the Education Policy and Quality unit and guidance on its integration is available through the assignment management tool you use (see links above). Please refer to the policy in your department.
