Faculty teaching in-class or online courses can check student papers online for possible plagiarism using the Turnitin system.

What is Turnitin?

Turnitin solutions promote academic integrity, streamline grading and feedback, deter plagiarism, and improve student outcomes.

How does Turnitin work?
Instructors (or students) submit assignments to Turnitin.com. Submitted papers are compared against billions of Internet sources and Turnitin.com’s own database of previously submitted papers. Instructors (and students, if enabled by their instructors) receive a set of color-coded “Originality Reports,” one for each submitted paper. The color-coding identifies the sources of materials.

Is there documentation?
For Faculty:
These Instructor Guides and Demo movies contains very thorough information about accessing and using Turnitin.

For Students:
Guides and Demo movies are also available for those of you who wish to have students utilize the Turnitin system.
