Turnitin is the originality checking software we use at the University of Kent.
- Submitted work is matched against a database of previously submitted work from every institution which subscribes to Turnitin, (including international institutions); current and archived internet pages and databases of books, journals and periodicals.
- Turnitin does not detect plagiarism; it is text-matching software which provides an "originality report" on what proportion of a student's submission is original (not matched to other sources) or unoriginal.
- Turnitin also offers an online marking tool - Feedback Studio, allowing teachers to add text-based comments and marks to assignments submitted to Turnitin.
The University's Turnitin Policy is available here:https://www.kent.ac.uk/uelt/strategies/UoK%20Turnitin%20Policy%202019.pdf
