TurnItIn Instructions

Faculty use TurnItIn to detect possible plagiarism.

Sample Syllabus Statements

To foster an atmosphere of integrity, faculty who plan to use Turnitin as a plagiarism detection tool are responsible for informing their students about how it will be used. This can easily be done with a note included in the course syllabus.

These two statements are examples of how the faculty can notify students that they are using Turnitin:

  1. “Adelphi University has a license agreement with Turnitin.com, a service that helps prevent plagiarism from internet resources. All written assignments in this course will be submitted through and reviewed by Turnitin.com. Please see Adelphi’s tips for students on preventing plagiarism and Student instructions for Turnitin.com for more information.”
  2. “Adelphi University has a license agreement with Turnitin.com, a service that helps prevent plagiarism from internet resources. I reserve the right to request an electronic copy of any written assignment submitted in this course for review through Turnitin.com. Please see Adelphi’s tips for students on preventing plagiarism and Student instructions for Turnitin.com for more information.”

Using Turnitin

Faculty can determine the most effective use of Turnitin. Faculty can let students see a preview of the originality report. Rather than using this service to catch students plagiarizing, faculty can use it to help students check and correct references and citations before submitting their final versions. Faculty can have all students submit papers via Turnitin or they might choose to submit suspicious documents in the presence of the student.

How to Access the Tunitin Service

For faculty who are using Moodle the easiest way to implement Turnitin is directly through their Moodle courses. No additional user names or passwords are required. Simply add a Turnitin assignment from the control panel.
