Turnitin Plagiarism Prevention - KSAS/WSE

Turnitin Logo

The Schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering participate in a JHU contract for services from Turnitin. In addition to Plagiarism Detection, we also have access to: Blackboard Integration, Grademark, Peermark, and iPad grading.

Blackboard Integration simplifies the entire process of using Turnitin. Requesting an instructor account is no longer necessary, students no longer have to know class codes or enrollment passwords, and assignment grades don't have to be imported or exported. Assignments can be created and graded within your Blackboard course. Learn more about Turnitin Blackboard Integration.

Grademark allows truly paperless assignment handling. Assignments are created and released to students. Students submit electronic copies of their work. Faculty can then comment directly on the entire paper, sections of the paper, or specific words and phrases. Faculty can also click on and insert a number of common observations about student writing - e.g., "check spelling," "paraphrase," "good argument," and "cite source." Comments are then sent back to students electronically - all using just a browser. Grading rubrics can also be created and easily applied to submissions. This can help TAs grade consistently. When Grademark is used with Blackboard Integration, it becomes even more powerful. Grademark can be used with or without Plagiarism detection. Peermark is similar to Grademark, but allows students to comment on each other's papers, all electronically.
