Turnitin, the plagiarism checking tool, is available in Canvas. Turnitin allows instructors to receive student assignments electronically and also runs a plagiarism check as part of the submission process. These reports can be used to detect plagiarism and also shared with students as a teaching tool.
Turnitin checks student papers against the current and archived internet, scholarly databases, a global repository of student papers, and a Penn-only repository of student papers.
Important: Enable Turnitin before Students Submit Assignments
Turnitin must be enabled for a Canvas assignment before students begin uploading their submissions. If students have already submitted an assignment, you will not be able to enable Turnitin retroactively and will instead need to create a separate Turnitin assignment and then have students re-submit to that assignment. For more information, please consult the directions for creating a Turnitin assignment in Canvas.
