Faculty now have the option of enabling Turnitin similarity checking for assignments submitted through Canvas. Student submissions are compared against the Turnitin database and a Similarity Report is generated. The report highlights material in the student’s work that matches Turnitin’s database of websites, articles, journals and student papers.
What you need to know about the integration:
- It works with text entry and file upload online submission types.
- You access the Similarity Index and Report via Canvas’s Speedgrader or Grades page.
- You control whether a student sees the Similarity Report when they view grades and assignment submission details.
- Include this Turnitin Use Statement in your syllabus to let your students know that you are using Turnitin and why.
