Turnitin for Students

Turnitin for Students

Turnitin is an online tool that you use to check your assignments for similarity with other documents in Turnitin’s database.

Access Turnitin via your Moodle course. If your teacher has set it up, you will most likely see the Turnitin logo and the instructions for submission in your Moodle course.

To check the Similarity Report of your assignment before you submit your final version, submit your draft document through the Turnitin assignment submission link. This will produce a Similarity Report.

You can still edit your draft and resubmit it (in the same place – no need to delete the old one) until the due date. Any new draft you submit will overwrite the old one, so only your final version will be saved in the system.

For more help with Turnitin, your teacher is the first person to ask, or the Turnitin website. Or you can book an appointment with a Learning Advisor. 

IT support staff offer technical assistance.
