Turnitin is an online plagiarism detection service that some faculty utilize as part of the assignment submission process on Canvas. Turnitin produces a similarity report that highlights student paper content that matches the turnitin document database. The report must be analyzed to determine what passages are legitimate uses of existing language (e.g. direct citation/ quoting), and what passages might constitute plagiarism.

See the links below for more information about turnitin and for turnitin instructions for both students and faculty.
