What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is a web-based text-matching software application that enables educators and students to check assignments for improper referencing or potential plagiarism (copying other people's work from websites, books, student papers etc). It is an essential teaching and learning tool for alerting and assisting students to avoid plagiarism.

The use of Turnitin is one approach implemented at St Brendan-Shaw College to minimise plagiarism and ensure standards of academic honesty in work submitted for assessment.

Its use is endorsed by the St Brendan-Shaw College Authenticity and Academic Integrity Policy.
