Originality Check Features

Trusted Similarity Scores

Each Similarity Report generates a similarity score which is the percentage of matching or similar text that has been uncovered allowing instructors to easily identify students who are trying to take shortcuts and those who are having challenges and need educator support the most.

Comprehensive Similarity Reports

The Turnitin Similarity Report is a powerful tool that quickly identifies unoriginal or improperly cited student writing by highlighting similarities to the world’s largest collection of internet, academic, and student paper content. Each match is color-coded to help instructors easily interpret the report.

 Filters & Exclusions

Allows instructors to set parameters for the Similarity Report and eliminate insignificant matches by excluding quotes, bibliography, or matches that fall under a certain word count or percentage.

Text Manipulations

Instructors can quickly identify submissions that have been deliberately manipulated to circumvent integrity checking algorithms.

Unlimited Drafts

Allows students to see their Similarity Reports and receive immediate formative feedback which they can use to assess their own work and self-correct before final submission.

 ETS e-rater® Grammar Check

Provides a summary and diagnostic feedback about errors in grammar, usage, mechanics, style and spelling errors. Feedback includes examples tailored according to grade levels and links out to the grammar.

Upholding academic integrity today requires more

The rapid shift to online learning provides different opportunities for misconduct. While a holistic approach to academic integrity is advocated, it is likely that gaps will emerge. We must be continually updating the toolkit of support and detection measures.
