Turnitin Information Sheet

  1. 1. Turnitin Information Sheet Overview Turnitin is an online system for creating “submission boxes” for student written work. It can be used either in conjunction with a learning management system, such as Blackboard or Moodle, or independently from the Turnitin website. Assignments are uploaded using a simple web-based form. This process can be completed either by students, or by instructors on behalf of students. Once uploaded, instructors are able to access the entire cohort’s assignments from one place, as well as perform a variety of other tasks. Most commonly, this involves plagiarism detection. Uploaded files are compared against a large collection of material for any similarities. Sources include assignments submitted by students around the world, web pages, books, journal articles and academic publications. When the comparison process is complete a value is displayed for each file that indicates the percentage of the work that matches other sources. A report is also generated that indicates which portions of the assignment were flagged as similar, and what source they matched. Assignments can be read and marked online in a browser window or downloaded to a local computer. When used in conjunction with a learning management system, Turnitin also synchronises marks and student enrollments with the Grade Centre.
