At the recommendation of Faculty Council, an online plagiarism detection service called Turnitin is now available to faculty who wish to have students' papers analyzed for originality against a database of web pages, articles, and student papers. In addition to the OriginalityCheck feature, there is also GradeMark for paperless grading, and PeerMark for online peer review.
There are two ways to make it possible for students to submit their papers:
Note that while Turnitin can identify similar passages between a submitted paper and other sources, it does not indicate whether or not plagiarism has occurred.
