Features

OriginalityCheck compares text based assignments for matches or similar text and provides a score. Note: it is not plagiarism detection software as it can't make decisions. Staff need to review and evaluate the score and/or feedback to ensure that the appropriate decision about performance and plagiarism is made

GradeMark lets staff digitally mark and review student submissions. Staff can add personalised feedback and attach comments to highlighted areas. GradeMark also has a library of standard comments that can be dragged and dropped onto the relevant place on the page. Staff can add items to the comments library.

PeerMark lets staff assign student submissions to peers for review based on a series of free response and scale questions they create. Peer reviews can be anonymous or attributed.

Note: Please make sure you have complied with the conditions listed on the Turnitin legal requirements page before using Turnitin.
