Introduction to Turnitin | May 1 and May 16 

Turnitin Similarity is UT Knoxville’s supported similarity checker and plagiarism detection tool for files submitted through Online@UT (Canvas) assignments. 

The tool works by comparing the text in file submissions to Turnitin’s database of previously submitted papers, published research papers, and numerous internet resources. A “similarity report” is then produced highlighting areas of the paper that match content in Turnitin’s database.
