Like many secondary schools and colleges, Woodstock Academy now subscribes to Turnitin.com. This service provides teachers and students feedback regarding the originality and mechanics of student work. The English Department will utilize Turnitin.com for major writing assignments as designated by the teacher. Students will know with ample time that they must submit to Turnitin.com on a certain due date, within certain time parameters.
It is English department policy that a final draft of a formal paper or major assignment is not truly submitted until the student uploads it to Turnitin.com. Some teachers may require a hard copy as well. If a student submits a hardcopy and does not submit to Turnitin.com, the paper will be penalized 10 percent. The paper MUST be submitted to Turnitin.com within 24 hours, or it will receive a zero EVEN IF a hard copy has been submitted.
