Turnitin at Farmingdale State College
Turnitin is plagiarism prevention software that Farmingdale State College has acquired for submission of papers to check for plagiarism and/or text matching and to help promote originality. Turnitin lets faculty quickly and effectively check text as compared to using a search engine.
Every paper submitted is returned in the form of a customized Originality Report. Results are based on exhaustive searches of both current and archived pages on the Internet, millions of student papers previously submitted to Turnitin, and commercial databases of journal articles and periodicals. Text matches are both color coded and identified numerically.
Turnitin is accessible via Blackboard. Instructions for faculty are below and are posted on the library website at: https://www.farmingdale.edu/library/turnitin_blackboard.pdf
