Turnitin.com is a plagiarism prevention service. Students upload their papers to http://www.turnitin.com, which generates an Originality Report for the paper. The Originality Report shows the percentage of material that is similar to other sources; it color codes the parts which are similar; and it lists the original sources and URL.
This tool will help teach to understand intellectual honesty, academic integrity, and good scholarly practice.
If you are not already familiar with Turnitin.com, please go to the website and explore the online tutorials (less than 10 minutes and very informative) available for faculty and students. Instructors can also download the Instructor User Manual (PDF).
The administrator on campus is Kevin Morimatsu.
