Turnitin can be used to check student papers for originality and possible plagiarism.

UBCO uses Turnitin to do the following:

  • OriginalityCheck – submitted papers are compared for matches or similar text to information in available repositories used by Turnitin. The results of this comparison are made available in the easy to read format of the Originality Report.
  • PeerMark – student submissions are assigned to peers for review based on a series of free response and scale questions created by the instructor. Peer reviews can be anonymous or attributed.

For instructor account setup please visit https://lthub.ubc.ca/guides/turnitin/ .

Please be sure to read the section on that page about Informing Your Students – students should create an anonymous email account to protect their privacy on the Turnitin system.
