What is Turnitin?


Turnitin is an originality checking and plagiarism prevention service that checks writing for citation mistakes or inappropriate copying. When a paper is submitted, Turnitin compares the paper to text in its massive database of student work, websites, books, articles, etc.    

Turnitin is integrated into the Assignments tool in Moodle. This means that when a student uploads a paper to your classroom for grading, the paper will automatically be sent through Turnitin's repository. The Similarity Report that Turnitin generates will help identify possible instances of plagiarism.
