Higher education technology leaders partner, enabling admissions teams to focus on enrollment rather than application quality
Carrie Marcinkevage Jeff Lorton
Hobsons and Turnitin for Admissions recognized this problem as an opportunity to join forces and offer campuses the ability to seamlessly integrate an automated content authentication process into enrollment management activities. Marcinkevage commented, "This year we added a first step into our admissions process, an authenticity and plagiarism review. The collaboration between Hobsons and Turnitin will make the authentication process less cumbersome for campuses. Admissions departments can simplify the authentication process, eliminating the time-consuming manual work, freeing admissions experts to focus on identifying the positive attributes that candidates might bring to their programs."
In 2010, over 550 admission offices used Hobsons’ ApplyYourself to process applications. This online application process management tool enables admissions offices to streamline application processes, integrating applicant data with existing prospect systems and arming admission teams with a centralized system to drive enrollment.
Turnitin for Admissions compares submitted content to an extensive database of Internet content, subscription content, and other documents to create a comprehensive similarity report. Personal statements and other applicant-created documents are verified to help reveal plagiarism, recycled submissions, purchased documents, and other unethical content.
