Turnitin Releases New, Free Teaching Resources - Richard Chang, THE Journal

Turnitin’s back-to-school program, “Rethink Feedback,” features new, free resources and tools this fall. The new elements are designed to help K–12 teachers and higher ed instructors teach proper methods of attribution, improve student writing skills and avoid plagiarism.“Teachers intuitively know — and research supports — that there are best practices to giving feedback to students in writing exercises,” said Jason Chu, education director at Turnitin, in a prepared statement. “Feedback that is appropriately constructive, specific, actionable and given at the right time drastically improves how much a student learns about good writing.” Earlier this year, Turnitin added Revision Assistant to its product lineup. The program, designed for grades 6-12 and developmental writing in higher education, extends teachers’ reach by giving students immediate feedback during the writing process.
