Turnitin

Getting Started with Turnitin

Trainers: Turnitin
Online: Follow link to training below

Turnitin is a program to check the originality of student papers using “OriginalityChecker.” Ideally, Turnitin is used in the context of partnering with students to avoid “cut and paste” plagiarism. Additionally, there are two new components — “PeerMark” and “GradeMark.” PeerMark allows the instructor to easily distribute papers to other students for peer review. GradeMark allows the instructor to set up rubrics and grade paperlessly using drag and drop comments within GradeMark. This service is available to all instructors at Ramapo College and, if you choose, your students as well.

NOTE: If instructors have reverted to the classic Turnitin interface, they will be automatically upgraded to the Feedback Studio interface on August 1, 2017.

Implementing Turnitin in at Ramapo:

  • For instructors NOT using Moodle – Information on how to set up your Turnitin account can be found on the My Ramapo/Luminis “Tech Connect” Tab
  • For instructors using Moodle – Turnitin can be integrated into Moodle by choosing the Turnitin assignment type. Moodle users do not need to create a separate Turnitin account.

Turnitin Instructor Training Resources:

  • Instructor Guides contain videos, how-to guides, and quick tips to help educators get up and running with the new Feedback Studio interface in minutes.

Instructor Training

Turnitin Student Training includes:

Quick-start Videos Tutorial – Getting Started with Turnitin

Quick start Guides, walk you through an easy step-by-step process to introduce you to the service and get you up and running fast
