If your lecturer wishes you to submit assignments through Turnitin, they will have created a ‘Turnitin assignment drop-box’ in Moodle.
Turnitin is software which checks whether text in your assignment is too similar to that in your textbook or other references.
The software identifies passages of text in your assignment that are too similar to original texts that you have used. It is designed to allow you the opportunity to amend your work prior to submission.
The Turnitin Library Guide is provided to help you. It demonstrates how to access and use Turnitin and provides FAQs on the process:
The guide is divided into six sections:
- What is Turnitin?
- How do I use Turnitin?
- The Originality Report
- How do I increase originality?
- Faculty policies, and
- Frequently Asked Questions.
