Turnitn Originality Report

What is the Turnitin Originality report?

When submitting an assignment, a file is uploaded into the dropbox. That file is automatically processed by Turnitin and an Originality report is created.


The following resources should answer many of your Turnitin questions; however, feel free to contact the Reference Librarians at the Wellehan Library for additional support.

Turnitin currently accepts files that are less than 100 MB in size. If submitting a file that is larger than 100 MB, you can reduce its size by splitting it up into smaller files.
