Check out +Plagiarism Today's analysis of +Turnitin 's  recent report on Plagiarism Prevention in #HigherEd .
See our interactive calculator here: http://turnitin.com/assets/en_us/media/effectiveness-calculator-us-he/ 
 
Turnitin has released a follow up to its earlier study about the impact of plagiarism detection tools in higher education. Now, it's setting its sights on higher education and the results are interesting both for their impact and similarity. http://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2014/02/05/turnitin-release-study-impact-plagiarism-detection-software-higher-education/

+Turnitin invites you to nominate your school, your colleague, or yourself to be a Turnitin All-Star and share stories of improving original writing, saving time while giving great feedback, and helping others use Turnitin to grade smarter. In March, six schools and six educators will be honored as Turnitin All-Stars

Happy Valentines Day from +Turnitin.
We love our Turnitin educators. We're fortunate to have such passionate people using Turnitin. Instructors that do whatever it takes to help their students become successful. Teachers that share their knowledge, share their experience, and share their passion. Educators that give, and give, and give.

Story
Tagline
Prevent plagiarism and deliver comprehensive feedback on students' written work.
Introduction
Turnitin improves the student writing cycle by preventing plagiarism and providing rich feedback to students. Turnitin consists of three primary tools:
  • OriginalityCheck allows educators to check students' work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against Turnitin's expansive content databases. Every Originality Report provides instructors with the opportunity to teach their students proper citation methods as well as to safeguard their institution's academic integrity.
  • PeerMark gives instructors the ability to create peer review assignments that students use t evaluate and learn from one another's work. Peer reviews can be assigned as online homework rather than taking precious class time. These assignments provide a unique and valuable framework for students to develop critical thinking and writing skills.
  • GradeMark is a an innovative paperless grading tool that allows instructors to leaave the days of red ink and stacks of papers behind. GradeMark's drag-and-drop commenting and one-click rubrics are a time-saving alternative to traditional pen-and-paper grading, making it easy for instructors to give students the valuable, time-sensitive feedback that's so essential in building quality writing skills.
