Concerned About Plagiarism?

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3500/4043369767_1a24b71136.jpgOne tool that can address plagiarism concerns, is Turnitin, a plagiarism checking application that allows instructors to receive student submissions electronically and runs an originality check as part of the submission process.

The originality report checks student papers against the current and archived internet, scholarly databases, a global repository of student papers, and a Penn-only repository of student papers.

Alternately these reports can also be shared with students as a teaching tool on proper citation styles.

This product also provides an online grading tool called GradeMark which allows for on-screen grading and commenting, similar to track changes,  and a peer reviewing tool called PeerMark.

The Penn Libraries has licensed Turnitin for use in Blackboard and Canvas. For more information, please see our guides:
