turnitin

All of our Schools and Departments use Turnitin for assignment submitting, marking and feedback, making assessment simple.

Turnitin is a web-based tool which is integrated into Blackboard, and is primarily used for text matching and checking plagiarism within assignments that are submitted by students.

Tutors are also able to use Turnitin to mark and provide feedback on students' work, and so it is an efficient and convenient way to handle the submission of coursework and assignments.

Similarity report
