Student Guide for Turnitin
Your instructor may choose to use Turnitin in your class by adding a special link
on your course home page in WorldClassRoom for you to use to submit your paper for
grading. Turnitin creates an "Originality Report" that matches text from your papers
to text from academic databases, the internet, and other student papers, assisting
the reader in identifying if text is a direct excerpt from another source.
If your instructor has chosen to do so, this Originality Report may be made available to you to improve your paper by resubmitting after making sure everything has been properly cited and quoted.
