I posted the same on whirlpool but had to post here to reach more audience. Apologise if it breaks any rules but might need a solution fast. Did search the forum but could not find a suitable solution so thought of posting my question.
My friend did her final examination last week at Top Education Institute, Hobart and she got just 10% as the final mark for a Business subject. The exam was conducted online and she was given two articles as examination material.
When inquired about the low marks, the lecturer replied because she got higher similarity on Turnitin, 70%. But it was because Turnitin analysed the Examination questions as well.
The question is, can you copy content from examination material and use it on your answers. Like statements? And should the lecturer just check for the content she has written? Realistically, I don’t think its plagiarism if anyone would be referring to their examinations materials for supporting their ideas.
She already emailed and was told her that Provost and the Dean have investigated this matter and they made this decision. Is there something she could do.
