Prevents plagiarism Allows for better reviewing and grading Tracks your progress
Turnitin helps to ensure originality in student writing by comparing papers with over 150 million assignments and billions of web pages. It will begin by comparing your paper with papers from other Molloy students. It tells the professor the percentage of the student’s assignment that was found in these other papers and can also show them the original work where the lifted section was found. The professor always has final say over the analysis of your paper.
