Turnitin is the plagiarism detection service used in Canvas at NCTC to check submitted assignments for original content. The paper will be checked against existing material from several online sources. Turnitin will return a "percentage of plagiarism" based on how closely your content matches the existing content.
Turnitin can consume student on-line submissions and submission files in most file formats (e.g. ppt, html, doc, docx, pdf, txt, rtf, ppt cdf, google docs, etc.)
Note: Turnitin Does Not Work with Mac Pages documents. The documents will need to be converted to one of the acceptable formats.
