Use TurnItIn Plagiarism Detection

TurnItIn is a plagiarism detection service that is integrated within Pilot. GradeMark, an online tool for grading and annotating student assignments is also available through the TurnItIn tool. Both of these services are available simply by enabling OriginalityCheck when you create a Dropbox in Pilot.

When you create a Dropbox folder, the option for Turnitin is found under the “Turnitin” tab on the tool navigation bar.

Check the box to “Enable GradeMark” and then you will be able to select the box to “Enable Originality Check.” GradeMark is an assessment tool built-in to Turnitin and is required to be able to generate an originality report (you have to enable GradeMark, but you are not required to use it).

Under the “More Options in Turnitin” button, you can choose the sources against which the submission is compared as well as choosing the criteria you want used for the report creation.  If you want students to be able to view the originality reports for their submissions, check the box under the “Display” setting.

To view the originality reports, click on the Dropbox folder title, and click on the colored box that is located beside the originality report score to open the TurnItIn report.
