Automated Essay Spinning - An Initial Investigation
Abstract and Figures
This paper examines automated essay spinning, where a new variant of an essay can be easily produced by a student for them to submit for academic credit. This new essay represents plagiarism. Four spinning processes are tested to generate new versions of three corpora of documents. The originality of documents in the new corpora are assessed using three plagiarism detection tools, Turnitin, TRanker and Ferret. The technique of Automated Translation, where an essay is translated to and from English, perhaps via a sequence of other languages, is found to produce presentable work which may not be detected as unoriginal.
