At CSS, Turnitin is embedded in Brightspace, so faculty wishing to have students use Turnitin should get information from our Center for Instructional Design (CID).
For students wishing to submit papers to Turnitin on their own, they can do that by clicking on the course Brightspace for Students and selecting section 4.1 Assignments (under Completing Course Content). To access the similarity reports, select Assignments in the blue NavBar.
Turnitin compares submitted papers to its database full of Internet sites, other papers, and online resources. It generates an originality report which can be used to check for plagiarism and to double check student's work.
