How does Turnitin work in the SpeedGrader™?

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.
