Using TurnItIn in Canvas

TurnItIn identifies possible instances of plagiarism in Assignment submissions by comparing those files against a massive database consisting of over 45 billion web pages, 337 million student papers, and 130 million publications.

Once an Assignment submission has been processed by TurnItIn, the instructor may view an “Originality Report” showing matches between text in the submission and the TurnItIn database.

The TurnItIn System Status page is a good place to check if the TurnItIn system is experiencing problems. Bookmark this page for future reference >>> Click here for the TurnItIn System Status page


Canvas Plagiarism Framework

TurnItIn has released a new "Plagiarism Framework" for Canvas that is much simpler to use than the TurnItIn LTI, and integrates much better with Canvas. The Canvas Plagiarism Framework is the recommended method for almost all users.
