Plagiarism detection, writing feedback & rubric grading


Turnitin is an online document submission tool that checks student work for plagiarism. It allows instructors to assign, grade, and check student work for comparisons to previously submitted work. Students use Turnitin to submit assignments, receive grades and instructor feedback, and check their work for plagiarism comparisons. It is available for purchase by educational institutions.

Instructors then add their class by selecting the ‘Create a New Class’ dashboard from their menu and entering in the class name and enrollment password, and pressing the submit. Teachers then distribute the class ID and enrollment password to students, along with a Turnitin-generated link inviting them to create student profiles.

To view student submissions and their reports, teachers select the submission from their ‘Assignment Inbox’ and select the ‘report icon.’ The Originality Report will open in a new ‘Document Viewer.’ All similar sources and their percentage will appear in a column to the right of the submitted document in a color corresponding to the highlighted similar text within the document.
