What is a Turnitin originality report, and where can I find samples?
When an instructor or student submits a paper to Turnitin.com, the paper is compared to Turnitin's primary databases. Turnitin then generates an originality report, which indicates text overlap with sources in its database. The report indicates the percentage of non-original material in the paper, as well as specific passages that match its sources.
At IU Bloomington, to view and discuss a sample originality report, instructors may contact CITL. At other campuses, instructors should inquire about availability at their campus teaching and learning centers.
Turnitin.com offers guides and user manuals. Note that PeerMark is available only from the Turnitin site, not through Oncourse. Most GradeMark options are available through Oncourse, but students will be unable to view comments until after the due date for an assignment. For additional help, instructors can contact their campus teaching and learning centers.
