Okay, ChatGPT is getting even more interesting. Reminder, I’m not promoting ChatGPT or advocating for its use, just highlight how it can shake up (dare I say “transform”?) K-12 and post secondary education. I went to https://chat.openai.com/ and was interested to see how much plagiarism Turnitin would find with the first example on the list below assuming millions of curious users have clicked on it to see what it comes up with. What Turnitin percentage do you think it came up with?

Here is Turnitin’s result.

One surprising result is that I found the cheaters are cheating. The major paper mill Course Hero is using ChatGPT (28%) to create papers and then probably sell them to students.

Without these two results it would return a 0% result after millions of generations. Have I read it? Of course not. Assignment done and move on.

However, the battle is on between AI and Turnitin with Turnitin’s AI Writing Detection Capabilities. Let’s see how many rounds they can go before one concedes.

Hang on, why am I spending time writing this when I can just…hmmm.

FINALLY, I will ask ChatGPT to “Suggest 5 ways to improve this blog post.” My son told me he does this in ChatGPT before handing anything in. He spends hours playing with ChatGPT adding more concise requests which churn out more accurate responses (“Revise my grade 9 essay and tell me what revisions you make.” (Yes, it does and it did very well)). Talk about critical thinking skills!!

  1. Clarify the purpose and focus of the blog post: The post seems to jump from one topic to another without a clear central message. It would be helpful to clarify the purpose and focus of the post to guide the reader and improve the overall coherence of the piece.
  2. Provide more context: The post assumes that the reader is familiar with the topic of AI-generated content and Turnitin, but not everyone may have the same level of familiarity. Adding more context and explanation would make the post more accessible to a wider audience.
  3. Cite sources: The post makes several claims without providing evidence or sources to back them up. Citing sources would make the post more credible and trustworthy.
  4. Reframe the tone: The post has a casual and informal tone that may come across as unprofessional or disrespectful. Reframing the tone to be more neutral and objective would make the post more effective.
  5. Edit for clarity and grammar: The post contains several grammatical errors and sentence fragments that detract from the overall quality of the writing. Editing for clarity and grammar would make the post more polished and professional.
