Turnitin Anti-Plagiarism

CSU, Chico currently uses Turnitin as its primary plagiarism prevention software but it can also facilitate peer review and provides for rich mark-up of student submissions. Turnitin integrates into Blackboard Learn. No registration or passwords are required to use it inside the learning management system.

What does Turnitin do?

Turnitin contains three components:

Checks student submissions for originality against's database of billions of journals, internet pages and previously submitted student work. Turnitin automatically generates an Originality Report for the faculty member, and also for students, depending on the settings determined by the instructor.

Additional Information

Since students own the copyrights to their works (in most cases), please keep in mind that they should be informed that a copy of their paper will be sent to and become part of Turnitin's repository.  For students who don't agree to this, Turnitin suggest that you offer alternatives, such as: "the student could be required to turn in a photocopy of the first page of all reference sources used, an annotated bibliography, and a one page paper reflecting on their research methodology."

If you used Turnitin in Vista and are setting up a Turnitin assignment for the first time in Bb Learn, you may encounter an error. If so, please consult the following FAQ article to learn how to fix it: Why do I get an error message when adding a Turnitin assignment to Blackboard Learn?.
