Turnitin is a plagiarism detection tool available through Canvas. The way to use Turnitin  is changing and will be easier to set-up. This post contains information on why this change is happening and what you can do about the change. 

As a result of a District decision, effective August 1st, 2019, the Turnitin GradeMark, PeerMark, Rubrics, and ETS eRater tools will no longer be available, and a new method to create assignments with plagiarism detection is available. The District has retained access to use Turnitin to detect plagiarism and to  generate originality reports (the report that identifies the percentage of the paper that was plagiarized). You can continue to create assignments with Turnitin as you have in the past, or you can use the new method. If you wish to convert existing Turnitin assignments to the new system of Turnitin, this hyperlink provides the instructions on how to convert those assignments. If you need assistance, please make an appointment with the CTLE or visit us during our open lab hours (Monday-Thursday from 9:00 am-2:00 pm).

Effective January 1st, 2020 if an originality report is to be generated with an assignment, all assignments will need to be created with the new method. In addition, after January 1st, 2020, if you want to see the originality report of an assignment submitted under the old method, you will have access to the report by logging into your Turnitin account.  

The CTLE strongly encourages everyone to start to make the transition this semester.  After January 1st, 2020, assignments that did not convert to the new Turnitin method will give an error message to students when the students attempt to submit an assignment.  

Please know the CTLE is available to assist everyone with the transition and to answer questions.
