Turnitin—an Internet-based plagiarism prevention system—is now available for use by all Syracuse University instructors, including those offering SU courses through Project Advance.
Turnitin allows instructors to upload student work (submitted as electronic files, such as a Word document) into the system and receive a report that identifies “matched text.” The instructor still must analyze the report for originality, but Turnitin does provide them with more information that can be used to make this determination.
If you plan to use TurnItIn in your classroom:
- You must submit a request for an account to be created.
- Syracuse University requires that parents sign a TurnItIn Parental Permission form. Completed forms should be mailed to the Project Advance office.
