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.

Creating a Turnitin Assignment
Peermark assignments are based on existing assignments. i.e. assignments that you have already created in the system. With the advanced options in PeerMark instructors can choose whether the reviews are anonymous or attributed, decide if students should be excluded from reviews, or pair students to assign students specific papers to review.
Peermark assignments are created using the following three distinct steps:
|Step 1: Create a Peermark Assignment →|
|Step 2.a: Distribute a PeerMark Assignment →|
|Step 2.b: Pair Students for Review →|
|Step 3: Add Questions to the Review →|
