Turnitin is a web-based plagiarism prevention service, class management tool, and digital grading system for faculty.
Turnitin provides faculty with a web-based plagiarism prevention service, class management tools, and digital grading. Submitted papers are compared for matches or similar text in the repository and results are made available in an easy-to-read Originality Report. Students can receive grades and comments for all submissions using the GradeMark assessment feature. Turnitin also allows for review and graded assignments in a paperless environment.
Turnitin can be used in two separate ways, either directly through the Turnitin website or through an integration within Blackboard. Turnitin also provides faculty the ability to create peer review assignments using Peermark. This tool will allow students to read, review, and comment on the work of other members of their class.
