After a student submits a document, it will be compared against the search targets you selected and Turnitin will generate an Originality Report.

When the Originality Score and Reports are ready, you can view the reports by clicking on the assignment on the front page of your course site and then entering the Submission Inbox tab.

Grades can also be entered while in the Submission Inbox tab.

    • As you review the Originality Scores and Reports, please bear in mind that they require interpretation.  For example, highlighted text may in fact be cited correctly and therefore a good paper with many appropriately cited quotations may generate a high Originality Score (indicating a high percentage of matching text).  If you discover something that looks like plagiarism, be quick to investigate but slow to judge.  You may wish to ask for help from your colleagues, from your college’s librarians, from the judicial affairs office, or from the director of faculty development in interpreting the results before confronting a student.
