Thank you for attending our AI Detection and Awareness workshops! We now offer a Turnitin AI detection tool for all campus instructors. Please note that while other options exist, our support will be focused on Turnitin.
Clearly Define AI Use for Your Students
- It’s essential to communicate your expectations regarding AI usage with your students.
- Recognize that the definition of “cheating” can vary among instructors and courses.
- Consider AI as a potential educational resource rather than a threat. For example, consider using AI as a possible tutor or study aid.
- Make sure to incorporate accessible AI policies within your syllabus.
Adapting Assignments for an AI-Integrated Environment
- Encourage students to reflect personally as they interact with AI tools.
- Request students to provide documentary artifacts such as outlines, rough drafts, and bibliographies as part of their assignments.
Utilizing Turnitin in Canvas for AI Writing Detection
- Turnitin, integrated into Canvas, offers a comprehensive AI Writing Detection feature.
- Emphasize that all submissions through Turnitin undergo thorough AI content scanning.
- To access the AI indicator, refer to the Similarity Report (Instructions on how to find the Similarity Report can be found here):
- The AI indicator is not visible to students.
- AI detection only works well with lengthy prose.
- It may not provide reliable results for bullet points, brief responses, short essays, or poetry.
- Currently, AI detection exclusively supports English text.
- Remember that AI detection scores are not absolute; any concerning findings should be discussed with students.
AI Detection Technology Progress
- Be aware that AI detection technology continually advances to catch up with generative models.
