Turnitin is a plagiarism prevention service that allows faculty the ability to check student papers and written assignments for originality against internet sources, other student submissions, academic databases.

After a student submits an assignment that requires the Turnitin plagiarism check, Turnitin provides a similarity report, which is a color-coded report highlighting content that could be indicative of plagiarism.
