How does Turnitin work in the SpeedGrader?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

Turnitin provides an originality report and similarity index letting the instructor know how much of the assignment is original. This report is displayed in SpeedGrader.

Turnitin must be enabled at the account level to be used in your course.

Note: These steps are only applicable for the Turnitin Plugin in Canvas. If you have questions regarding the Turnitin LTI, please contact Turnitin.
