Turnitin

Getting Started with Turnitin Feedback Studio

Trainers: Turnitin
Online: Follow link to training below

Turnitin is a program to check the originality of student papers. Ideally, Turnitin is used in the context of partnering with students to avoid “cut and paste” plagiarism. Turnitin Feedback Studio contains other components for meaningful instructor feedback, grading, and peer review of assignments. Instructors can set up rubrics and grade paperlessly, use drag and drop comments which are customizable, or even record a brief audio voice comment. PeerMark allows the instructor to easily distribute papers to other students for peer review. Turnitin is available to all instructors at Ramapo College and, if you choose, your students as well.

Implementing Turnitin in at Ramapo:

  • 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. This is the easiest method.
  • For instructors NOT using Moodle – Information on how to set up your Turnitin account can be found on the Ramapo Self Service “Tech Connect” Tab

Turnitin 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.
