Turnitin® is a plagiarism prevention service available in BeachBoard. Students submit their papers electronically, and Turnitin® compares the text of those papers to text found in billions of other documents on the Internet, in papers submitted by other students around the world, and in commercial databases of journal articles and periodicals. Whenever similarities between the text in a student's paper and the text in an existing document are found, Turnitin® highlights those similarities, providing an annotated document showing both the student's paper and the original source. 

Note: TurnItIn cannot generate similarity reports for Text Submissions in Dropbox.
