The above documentation covers everything up to (but not including) viewing student papers. To learn how to view student papers in the Feedback Studio viewer (and access the tools that help you detect possible plagiarism), click the links below.

  • How to View Similarity Reports
    Similarity Reports display matches of words, phrases, and sentences in a student paper with those found in external sources - such as web sites, journals, and other student papers.
  • Interpreting the Similarity Report
    Turnitin does not check for plagiarism in a piece of work. Instead, Turnitin checks a student's work against their proprietary databases, and if there are instances where a student's writing is similar to, or matches against, one of Turnitin's sources, Turnitin will flag this for you to review.
