P591: Turn it in the writing cycle and general chemistry lab reports

Lafayette Eaton (St John Fisher College, USA)

The Turnitin Suite is an online tool that improves student writing through the writing cycle which is composed of Originality Check, PeerMark, and GradeMark.   OriginalityCheck ensures that student work is original while at the same time fostering an environment for learning how to properly cite work.    PeerMark engages students in the writing process by providing structured, anonymous feedback from other students.   GradeMark saves time and improves feedback though online grading where standard and customized marks appear directly on the student’s paper as well as customized rubrics.  This presentation will be an introduction to Turnitin as well as a demonstration of how it is used in the general chemistry lab.
