Instructor User Manual

Turnitin provides originality checking services, class management tools, and paperless digital grading products to educational institutions around the world. 

This user guide provides thorough explanations of the features and products found in the Turnitin website that are available for use by instructors.

  • OriginalityCheck - submitted papers are compared for matches or similar text to information in available repositories used by Turnitin. The results of this comparison are made available in the easy to read format of the Originality Report.
  • GradeMark digital assessment - student submissions are digitally marked and reviewed by the instructor in a paperless environment. Students are then able to view the results by logging into their Turnitin user profile. 
  • PeerMark - student submissions are assigned to peers for review based on a series of free response and scale questions created by the instructor. Peer reviews can be anonymous or attributed. 
  • Grade book - an online tool allowing instructors to track student performance in a class and provide this information to students.
