Turnitin, and How It Works in Canvas
Turnitin is the technology used to check the originality of students’ submissions to assignments, and is integrated into the Canvas Gradebook (i.e., the Speedgrader). To set up Turnitin for an existing assignment, and grade it, read the PDF: Turnitin for Canvas via LTI (revised December, 2015). You can also watch a recording of a recent DAT webinar that shows the procedures being performed.
