TurnItIn Plagiarism Tool

Turn-It-In technology is available to DePaul faculty to verify originality of assignments and for students to check citations. The technology is based on prior submissions to Turn-It-In as well as public sources against which a student's current submission is compared. After comparison, Turn-It-In gives the faculty member a report on the probability of plagiarism, though the final decision whether the work constitutes a violation of DePaul's Academic Integrity Policy is made by the DePaul course instructor. A student can use Turn-It-In to check their work and make sure it is properly acknowledged to the source from which they derived their material.
