Assignment Submission (Turnitin)


Supporting York's commitment to Academic Integrity, Turnitin is web-based software which scans submitted works for similarity to material in public websites, academic journals, papers purchased from an essay mill, etc., and to essays and assignments concurrently or previously submitted to Turnitin, which are stored in a database. An 'originality report' is then provided to the instructor, who remains responsible for determining any breach of academic honesty. Turnitin has released a major product upgrade called Turnitin Feedback Studio, which is a more streamlined user interface of the product while maintaining all of the functionalities of Turnitin.
