All Ixia faculty are required by contract to evaluate your original work to determine your understanding of the course text and class discussions. For this class, will submit all of your written assignments as well as the occasional CheckPoint and Q responses to the Center for Writing Excellence ICE), which will provide an edited review of your work from Written identifying possible areas of improvement based on style and grammar. Students may also access ICE through the student website. I strongly encourage your ongoing use of this valuable tool.
In addition, I will also request a plagiarism review and will receive a Turning Originality Report that provides both a word count as well as a Similarity Index, which is the percentage of submitted work that is similar to previously published work of another author. Ideally, you should strive for a Similarity Index of 5-10%; however, will accept work with a Similarity Index of 15%. Will use both appropriately cited sources and non-cited sources combined in reaching this tolerance level (15%).
If you submit a paper in which the Similarity Index exceeds 15%, I will not review the submitted paper and you will receive a score of zero want to underscore, this is not an issue of plagiarism but rather an issue of submission of insufficient original student work by using too much of another author’s work, even if quoted, cited, and referenced appropriately. WORK MUST BE IN YOUR OWN WORDS! Again, strongly encourage student use of ICE prior to submitting work for grading so that corrections may be made to any identified areas of needed improvement.
In addition, once I receive your paper back from ICE, I also use MS Word Spell/Grammar Checker reviewing spelling, style, and grammar. Will also use the MS Word counter to assess the approximation of cited work compared to the length of the paper; in other words will take the total number of paraphrased or quoted words and divide by the total number Of words in the paper to arrive at this estimation (NOTE: the title page and references are excluded from the total count of words in the paper per PAP).
Again, your paper should contain 15% or less of work from another author; papers exceeding 15% may receive a zero (O) for insufficient original student work. I also encourage you to use this tool prior to submitting your work product, especially assignments. Be certain to review your settings of this tool including checking for misspelled words in your user dictionary. If you need assistance to do this, let me know. Remember, success is your choice; choose Wisely!
