Turnitin is an originality checking and plagiarism prevention service that checks student writing for citation mistakes or inappropriate copying. When a paper is submitted, Turnitin compares it to text in its massive database of student work, websites, books, articles, etc.
Turnitin is integrated into the Assignments tool in Canvas. This means that when students upload a paper to your course for grading, it will automatically be sent through Turnitin's repository. The Similarity Report that it generates will help identify possible instances of plagiarism.
