Releasing the match
You may wish to release the match to the requesting instructor, it is up to you. In cases where the Originality Score is very high (indicating a high probability that the submission may have been shared or copied from some shared source) it may be helpful to the remote instructor to see the whole file.
If you do decide to release the matching Strathclyde submission you must be aware of data protection and confidentiality / commercial implications that may exist:
- Any personally identifiable information must be removed from the plain text reproduction in the email
- Any information that could be viewed as confidential must be removed.
- Any information that may be commercially sensitive or restricted in any form must be removed.
If you cannot implement such redactions then you should ignore the request.
To release the match simply reply to the email, and apply the redactions to the plain text reproduction.
Ensure that there is only one copy of the student's submission in the email!
