Overview and Features
Turnitin is a suite of online tools designed to enhance the Assignment submission process. Turnitin offers:
- Originality Check - student submission are compared to billions of websites and other papers submitted and highlights exact matches. Instructors can verify if students obtained their information from appropriate sources and properly cited those sources.
- GradeMark - Create interactive grading rubrics and provide feedback to students quickly and efficiently.
- PeerMark - Allows students to review each others submissions.
- If you simply want to view the originality report, you do not need a Turnitin account. When you create an Assignment in your e-Learning course, check the "Use Turnitin" box and a report will be generated for each submission.
- If, however, you would like to access the other GradeMark and PeerMark features of Turnitin, or you would like to submit any paper at any time for an Originality report, you will want to request a standalone Turnitin account.
