Turnitin enables instructors and students to check the similarity of student work comparing submissions to other sources on the Internet and in Turnitin’s extensive database. Additionally, instructors can directly mark-up student submissions – saving your frequently used comments in libraries of “quick marks” for improved work flow.

Why Should I use Turnitin?

  • Check for potential plagiarism
  • Drag and drop frequently used feedback comments
  • Leave voice comments
  • Grade by rubric
