|Turnitin allows educators to check students’ work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against continuously updated databases using the industry’s most advanced search technology. Every Originality Report provides instructors with the opportunity to teach their students proper citation methods as well as to safeguard their students’ academic integrity. [ from Turnitin]|
If you would like a Turnitin account, please contact the appropriate person below:
Education - Susan Bannon (844-4291)
Liberal Arts - Wiebke Kuhn (844-2056)
All other departments - Brandon Simmons (844-5181)
You can submit a paper (as long as there are no identifying marks on it) and use it for plagiarism detection and prosecution. However, if you require your students to submit a paper directly to Turnitin, you cannot use the plagiarism report. If a student submits a paper, then it is only for him or her to use as away to doublecheck that they are not plagiarizing.
So, if a student submits, then you cannot use it to punish the student.
However, you can submit it later and take punitive action.
