Plagiarism checking (Turnitin)

Turnitin is a tool available to students and academics. It checks assessments for referencing errors and potential plagiarism.

Students can use this tool to submit and check their assignments for plagiarism prior to submission.

Teachers can use this platform for grading, feedback and academic integrity.

Why use Turnitin (Plagiarism checking)

This easy to use tool allows for detailed instructor feedback in a variety of ways, including by text (both on the assignment and as a holistic comment), voice feedback and comments on the assignment.

When fully integrated, Turnitin allows for streamlined assignment submission, plagiarism checking, grading and feedback. Student grades flow automatically into the Interact2 Grade Centre. It creates a seamless student experience as it is set up by the academic, with the student submitting their work to it. Text matching is available to both the student and the academic. Both a similarity index and an originality report are available. The similarity index comes through as a percentage of the paper that has matched to other sources in the system. The originality report shows the matches in greater detail. The Turnitin platform is an integral aspect of the Charles Sturt Academic Integrity policy and process
