-In line with the referenced code (includes plagiarism violation) AUC subscribed to Turnitin.com, a web-based plagiarism detection system for faculty use. Turnitin.com serves to deter students from plagiarism via electronically uploading their work to the site for plagiarism detection. The system then works to check students’ uploaded work against many electronic sources and provides a percentage for plagiarized material (Originality Report). Teachers’ use of Turnitin.com enhances students’ academic integrity and it serves to act as a monitoring tool; students are encouraged to properly cite other scholars work. Also teachers can eliminate doubt regarding their students’ submitted assignments.
