What is Turnitin?
Turnitin is a program that checks student work for plagiarism. Turnitin has partnered with Otus to integrate their plagiarism detection within our rubric assessments. This feature is only available to those within a district that have active Turnitin subscriptions. If you are an administrator wanting to learn more about Turnitin, click HERE.

Grading a Rubric with Turnitin Enabled
There will be a Turnitin column on the grading page.
There are three possible statuses for this column.
- The Spinner - this means that Turnitin is still processing the document. Make sure to refresh your browser or check back later.
- A Percentage - this is the match percentage Turnitin detected. The percentages are color coded:
- A Triangle - this indicates that the document has been processed, but there are multiple student attachments to the rubric. You can select on Checked by Turnitin to see the percentage.
