Turnitin is the new anti-plagiarism checker we will be using inside of Canvas. To create a Turnitin assignment in Canas, please follow this step-by-step guide, or watch the video below.
How does the plagiarism “OriginalityCheck” score work?
Once you have created your Turnitin assignment inside of Canvas, you’ll be able to view a student’s OriginalityCheck score. The originality score shows the percentage of words in the paper that match the Turnitin database. To see how to evaluate a student’s originality score, please watch the short video below.
How is the Originality Report score calculated?
According to Turnitin, the Originality Report compares a student’s submission against their database of “…45+ billion web pages, 377+ million student papers and 130+ million articles from academic books and publications.”
Currently, the Turnitin integration into Canvas does not allow instructors to submit old papers to the Turnitin OriginalityCheck database.
