Turnitin is a web-based plagiarism detection software and educational tool available to University instructors through WebCampus Assignments. Turnitin's Similarity Report can identify similarities of student work and existing sources (including millions of student papers and journal articles, plus billions of Internet sources). Turnitin does not automatically detect plagiarism. Ultimately it is up to the instructor and students to interpret the meaning of the Similarity Report.
In addition to using Turnitin's plagiarism detection service, instructors may access Turnitin's grading and peer review tools.
