Turnitin Originality

Turnitin Originality has replaced SafeAssign as the supported plagiarism checker integrated in Purdue’s LMS, Brightspace. The tool works by comparing text in submitted assignments to a database of both student-submitted and published research papers, then produces a “similarity report” that highlights possible instances of plagiarism. Originality also includes E-rater grammar feedback technology that can check submissions for grammar, mechanics, style and spelling errors, providing “on the paper” feedback students can use before submitting an assignment. Turnitin Originality is free to both instructors and students.
