Turnitin Now Embedded in Assignments and Forums

As of the fall 2018 term, faculty will no longer be using the Turnitin assignment that includes the Turnitin logo. Moving forward, Turnitin will be embedded as a plugin in assignments and forums. Using Turnitin this way is a much smoother experience for both students and faculty. As a student, you will upload your assignments and forums exactly the same way you upload to an assignment or forum that isn’t using Turnitin. 

Faculty have the option to run student work through Turnitin this way, and there isn’t an indicator (i.e., the Turnitin logo) that an assignment or forum is being run through Turnitin until after the student has submitted to it; it is then that the student receives a “Turnitin ID” and, later, a similarity report. Attached is information about reviewing a Turnitin similarity report as well.
