Using Turnitin

Turnitin is a program that allows you and/or your teacher to check whether there is any unoriginal material in your work by comparing it to a database of print and online materials.

Your teachers may require you to submit your assignments to Turnitin or give you the ability to check your work for similarities against other published work, student assignments, textbooks and websites.
