Hi Mike,

I think this article was the predecessor to Erica’s reference below:

 

Davis, M. (2007) The role of Turnitin within the formative process of academic writing: a tool for learning and unlearning?, The Brookes ejournal of learning and teaching, vol. 2, no. 2 [Online]. Available at: http://bejlt.brookes.ac.uk/article/the_role_of_turnitin_within_the_formative_process_of_academic_writing/

 

I cite Mary’s excellent work a lot!

 

Also try:

Regarding the second point, the fact that Turnitin has a product for students to access called WriteCheck (http://www.writecheck.com/static/home.html) means that we cannot prevent students from submitting drafts if they want to and making their own formative use of Turnitin. I know it's not what you were looking for but one piece of evidence supporting your point might be that Turnitin are promoting formative use of their tools.

It's not often I ask something of this mailing list, but can you help me? I am looking for published and (ideally) peer-reviewed references for the following:

 

1) use of turnitin formatively as a plagiarism awareness tool, and its positives or negatives

2) access to turnitin and whether it helps plagiarists to "get away with it" by cooking their reports to avoid detection, or not.

 

Jude Carroll has published on the use of turnitin as an educational tool, if memory serves. In the latter case, Fintan Culwin et al has done some work refuting the ability for plagiarists to massage reports. However, I am trying to win an academic argument with colleagues here, so the weight of published work to cite would really help me make the case that students should be allowed to submit drafts and be advised on the results prior to submitting a final dissertation. Can you provide references to work you are aware of, to allow me to produce a definitive list?
