The following information and additional information can be found on the Turnitin page on the Study Skills site, including how to submit an assignment and how to review a Turnitin report.

Turnitin (turn it in) is the originality checking software used by FedUni. It is commonly referred to as plagiarism detection software, although this isn’t technically correct. Turnitin cannot form conclusions about whether plagiarism has occurred, it only returns a similarity percentage and links to those sources where similarity is detected. It is up to yourself or your lecturer to determine if plagiarism has occurred.
