Creating Turnitin-Enabled Canvas Assignments
The Turnitin Canvas Plagiarism Framework (CPF) tool is used to check the originality of student work and to detect possible plagiarism. This new version of Turnitin, made available in Canvas in 2018, streamlines the setup and submission process for Turnitin assignments from within your Canvas assignment.
Note: Turnitin cannot be used with quizzes or discussions.
Tip: It is recommended to allow students to see the originality report immediately upon submission and allow for multiple submissions to give the student an opportunity to address anything that comes up in the Similarity Report.
Turnitin doesn’t check for plagiarism per se, but instead check’s a student’s work against their database to see if there are instances where a student’s writing is similar to, or matches against, one of their sources. If a match is detected, it will be flagged for you to review. To access the Similarity Report:
NOTE: It is not necessarily cause for concern if a student’s assignment matches something in a Turnitin database (e.g. if a student used a quote, a match may be found).
The similarity score brings to your attention potential problem areas by providing a summary of matching or highly similar text found in a submission. For help accessing, interpreting, or refining the Similarity Report, see The Similarity Report.
