Turnitin is a plagiarism detection tool seamlessly integrated into the CLE platform. Its purpose is to assist instructors in assessing the authenticity of student work and ensuring proper citation of references. By comparing electronic documents submitted by students to a wide range of online sources and the Turnitin database, it generates an "originality report." This report provides a rating for the submitted assignments and identifies any text that matches existing content in its database or on the Internet

Instructors can use Turnitin for various assignment types within the CLE, including regular course assignments, PeerMark assignments, and Forum discussions. This enables them to effectively evaluate the originality of student's work and promote academic integrity throughout the learning process.

A typical submission made to an assignment in Turnitin generates a Similarity Report. The Similarity Report is the result of comparison between the text of the submission against the search targets selected for the assignment; this may include billions of pages of active and archived internet information, a repository of works previously submitted to Turnitin, and a repository of tens of thousands of periodicals, journals, and publications. Any matching or highly similar text discovered is detailed in the Similarity Report that is available in the assignment inbox.
The similarity score is a percentage of a paper's content that matches to Turnitin's databases; it is not an assessment of whether the paper includes plagiarized material.
