Graduate College Tip of the Week
Q: How can students use the Turnitin feature on Brightspace to check originality/plagiarism of their thesis or dissertation without the paper going into the turn-it-in repository?
A: Students cannot do it themselves, but faculty can by creating a unique Dropbox in Brightspace. When setting it up, go to advanced options and select “do not submit to repository.” Then any papers submitted to that Dropbox will be checked for originality but not included in Turnitin’s database.
