Viewing Originality Report Within Turnitin and Academic Honesty

This guide demonstrates how you can view your Turnitin assignment submission originality report from within the Turnitin and  Academic Honesty unit within MyLO. Turnitin is a software application for University students and staff which can be used to improve academic honesty. Turnitin compares your work against the work of others through an online database.  This database of electronic material includes journals articles, websites, and students’ work. The software produces a report that highlights where there is a close match between your work and that found on the Turnitin database. You can use the Academic Honesty assignment folder to check your assignment and its sources.

NOTE: You will still need to submit your assignment into your own unit. Submission into the Academic Honesty Assignment Folder will NOT affect the originality score you receive in your unit.
