Drexel Learn Turnitin
Turnitin checks students' work for improper citation or potential plagiarism. Files submitted to a Turnitin assignment dropbox are compared to an ever-growing database of web pages, newspapers, journals, books, and other students' papers. Each paper's comparison results are displayed with a color-coded chart indicating where similar blocks of text appear in Turnitin's database.
Turnitin includes a grading tool called GradeMark, which allows for online comments and feedback to be added directly to a student's submission. Instructors may also assign a grade to the student in GradeMark, which automatically flows to the Grade Center in Learn.
The Turnitin feature is available under the Assessments button in a content area.
Turnitin Direct Assignment
Turnitin Direct Assignment is the newer version of the legacy feature, Turnitin Assignment. Turnitin Direct is better integrated with Learn and thus has a more seamless look and feel. It also has the added feature of allowing instructors to copy a Turnitin assignment to future classes (this could not be accomplished in Turnitin Assignment).
