Promote critical thinking, ensure academic integrity, and improve student writing.


The Turnitin plugin in Moodle and learning tool in Canvas supports tools for plagiarism prevention (Originality Checking), online grading and feedback to students (GradeMark), and peer review (PeerMark). 

Turnitin’s plagiarism prevention tool generates originality reports that show how much of a document is original, cited from other sources, or unoriginal. Students learn the importance of original writing and attribution, and foster critical thinking skills that are important to student success.

Turnitin’s online grading feature streamlines the process of leaving feedback for students.  Feedback can include voice comments, drag-and-drop comments, and rubric-associated comments to engage students in the feedback process.

Turnitin is used within Moodle’s Assignment, Forum, and Workshop activities and with Canvas Assigments.
