Turnitin Plagiarism Prevention

Turnitin assignments are set up through an integration in MyClasses called the Canvas Plagiarism Framework. The Canvas Plagiarism Framework integration allows instructors to use Turnitin directly within MyClasses assignments to check for originality of submitted work. This framework allows faculty to utilize all of the MyClasses assignment features such as:

  • Rubrics
  • Resubmissions
  • Peer reviews
  • Group assignments

Since the Turnitin Originality Score is displayed directly within MyClasses, you can access the reports through SpeedGrader to open and interpret the results in Feedback Studio.

Required Syllabus Statement

Faculty who are interested in using Turnitin must:

  • Include the following statement in their syllabus: Salisbury University contracts with Turnitin for plagiarism detection and deterrence in support of The Salisbury Promise and academic misconduct policy. As a condition of participating in this course, all required papers may be subject to submission for textual similarity review and plagiarism detection through Turnitin. All papers submitted to Turnitin will be included as source documents in the Turnitin reference database solely for the purpose of detecting plagiarism consistent with fair use principles under federal copyright law. You may be asked to directly submit certain written course requirements through MyClasses. The instructor may also submit a student’s written assignment through Turnitin if the instructor, in good faith, suspects plagiarism.

  • Use MyClasses to create Turnitin submission assignments (SU Login Required).
