Turnitin 2

Turnitin 2

Turnitin provides originality checking services, class management tools, and paperless digital grading products. This most recent version of the product includes Peermark, a student-to-student review and feedback tool; and Grademark, a new grading interface.
Students submit assignments, papers, and other written through the Turnitin tool. Once submitted, these papers are compared against various repositories which are used by Turnitin. Papers are examined for matches and/or similar content to articles, websites, and even other student paper submissions. The results of these comparisons are collated and delivered to the instructor through a tool called an Originality Report.
