Specific Instructions for the Term Paper:
NOTE: I WILL NOT ACCEPT A PAPER WITH AN ORIGINALITY REPORT OVER 10% OR OVER 1% FROM A SINGLE SOURCE. THIS WILL RESULT IN A GRADE OF 0.
NOTE: This assignment has the classroom TII (TurnItIn) feature turned on. This means that once your assignment has been submitted to this area, it will automatically be submitted to Turnitin.com database to generate an Originality Report with an Originality Index. It takes anywhere from a minute to 24 hours (or longer) for this report to be generated and returned to the classroom assignment area. Check often to see if the report has been generated.
The acceptable criteria for the Originality Index in this course is a maximum of 10%. Which means 10% of the submitted paper has been matched with sources in the database and hence is not original to the student’s work. A 0% match index is ideal and should be aimed for. In addition to the 10% maximum overall match allowance, each of your cited sources should not exceed 1%. The bibliography section of your paper is excluded from the match index by your professor after the report has been generated by filtering this portion in the report. However, each cited source must not exceed 1%.
A report exceeding 10% Match Index will get a grade of 0. Any individual source of more than 1% match will reduce the paper grade by the difference of the match and 1%. So for example, a paper with overall match index of say 5% (which is acceptable for the overall match criteria of 10% max) with an individual source matched at say 4% (which is not acceptable for an individual source criteria of 1% max) will result in a 3 point reduction from the paper score of 12 points. You will have the opportunity to rework your paper and resubmit one for a new report generation. Please refer to Week 1 Announcement regarding Turnitin Originality Report for more details.
