Turnitin uses the same process as Canvas to upload work.
At VinUni, Turnitin has been integrated into Canvas LMS's Assignments tool to enable Turnitin to compare student's writing to text in its massive database of student work, websites, books, articles… and grade students’ assignments via Canvas SpeedGrader tool. Therefore, there is no need for Faculty/TAs to log in to Turnitin.com separately to check and grade student’s assignments.
However, in case you wish to use Turnitin.com to check your own writing/research papers, please send a request to IT HelpDesk.
Step 1: Login to your Canvas account
Step 2: Select your course
Step 3: Select Assignment
Step 4: Use the button to upload your file
Tick the box
Click “Submit Assignment”, a similarity report will generate for every file uploaded.
1. Accessing the Similarity Report
From the side of any page within Canvas, select Grades.
Then Click on Turnitin report icon
In case a similarity is found between student’s paper and sources, Turnitin will indicate that matches by changing the color of the report icon.
The color of the report icon indicates the similarity score of the paper:
2. View the similarity matches
The Match Overview (red color) lists all parts of a student paper that are similar to data in the repositories.
To view all sources, click the red All sources icon.
To access each match in more detail, click the arrow to the right of each similarity percentage.
Filter and setting button can be used to exclude unnecessary percentages.
3. Download the Similarity Report
Similarity Reports can be downloaded for easier viewing and the current display layers can be changed.
1. Interpret the similarity report
There is no ‘ideal’ similarity index in a similarity report.
Teachers analyze similarity report to determine whether a student plagiarized on a case-by-case basis.
Academic work will always contain matches resulting in a ‘similarity score’.
2. Excluding the bibliography and citation:
Turnitin looks for all quotes and bibliography used in the paper and removes them from the Similarity Report.
