TurnItIn is more than plagiarism check, and it is also our plagiarism check. So it’s very important to know how to set up assignments so they take advantage of this feature.


Grading with Turnitin

This video captures some of the complexities we reviewed in using Grademark, including using commonly-used phrases and bubbles and the match overview for checking plagiarism. While the look of TurnItIn has been revised, the features remain largely the same as those discussed in this video.
