Turnitin assists instructors with detecting possible instances of plagiarism in students' assignments.

Instructors can submit assignments for checking on behalf of students, or instructors can authorise students to submit assignments to Turnitin. (Students cannot submit on their own accord.)

Turnitin scans the document for similarities with a variety of databases. It then generates a report which highlights possible plagiarized paragraphs and provides the corresponding source(s).

Turnitin is:

  • for use by instructors in a classroom setting,
  • to check students' work for possible instances of plagiarism.

Post-graduate students and researchers, please use iThenticate.
