Turnitin is an originality checking and plagiarism prevention service that compares written reports for citation mistakes and inappropriate copying. Turnitin allows instructors to involve students in the writing process, give detailed, personalized feedback, identify possible plagiarism, and gauge student progress over time. In addition, TurnItIn uses e-rater® grammar feedback technology, developed by ETS®, to provide the instructor with the option to have spelling and grammar checked on all student assignment submissions. Key areas of focus in this session will be how to 1.) apply Turnitin to a Canvas assignment 2.) select optional settings to achieve the desired results and 3.) interpret results from the Similarity Report. Instructors will gain the ability to use the indicators from Turnitin to assist students with their writing deficiencies.
