Fight Plagiarism - Improve Student Writing
Turnitin is an online tool available to EFSC instructors as an integrated service
available in all EFSC Canvas classrooms. The OriginalityCheck detects and prevents
plagiarism by checking submitted student papers. Grademark enables instructors to
provide rich feedback as well as online grading directly on the student's paper. PeerMark
enables students to evaluate each others' work.
In Canvas you can create an assignment by using the external tool option (under the submission type setting select 'External Tool' instead of 'Online') to integrate all Turnitin features. This option will allow you to enter a grade in GradeMark which will transfer to the Canvas gradebook as well.
For more information on Turnitin features, visit the Turnitin website.
