Typing on a Computer



Turnitin is a tool used by students and faculty to assist with academic integrity. Instructors may choose to activate Turnitin on some written assignments within Brightspace. If Turnitin is available for an assignment, students simply submit their work and then review their similarity report.


This tool can be set by faculty so that students can submit a draft of their assignment prior to the due date allowing students to check their own work before officially submitting the assignment. 

NOTE: If you allow students to submit a draft of an assignment prior to final submission, faculty must remove any submitted drafts by clearing the attempt so students can upload their final paper.
