What is TurnItIn?

Turnitin is the global leader in evaluating student work. It is a cloud-based service for originality checking, online grading and peer review. TurnItIn saves instructors time and provides rich feedback to students. One of the most widely distributed educational applications in the world, Turnitin is used by more than 10,000 institutions in 135 countries to manage the submission, tracking and evaluation of student work online.

How Does TurnItIn Work?

TurnItIn helps to ensure academic integrity. An instructor sets up a class and an assignment in the Turnitin service. Students or instructors then submit the student’s work to Turnitin via file upload or cut-and-paste. Turnitin consists of three core functions: checking originality, grading online and conducting peer reviews.
 

When checking originality, Turnitin compares the submission’s text to a vast database of 45+ billion pages of digital content (including archived Internet content that is no longer available), over 337 million submissions in the student archive, and 130,000+ professional, academic and commercial journals and publications. 

Once assured of the submission’s originality, instructors grade online to provide rich feedback using drag-and-drop marks, voice comments, and rubrics. ETS® e-rater® technology is integrated with Turnitin to identify spelling, grammar, mechanics, usage and style errors so instructors can focus on providing more substantive feedback. Instructors can track student views of the graded work, customize and share comments and rubrics, track grades using a grade book, and assess students over time.
