Submitting Turnitin Assignment [Student]


Turnitin allows the instructor to evaluate the originality of your work and ensure the proper citation of references by comparing other students' electronic documents to a variety of online sources and the Turnitin database. The software then creates an “originality report” that rates submitted assignments and highlights text that appears in its databases or elsewhere on the Internet.
