What is TurnitIn Originality?


Turnitin Originality is Purdue’s centrally supported originality checker and plagiarism detection tool for files submitted through Brightspace assignments. 


Turnitin Originality is free to both instructors and students. The tool is only available within Brightspace and only for assignments where the instructor has enabled it. Files previously submitted to SafeAssign through Blackboard have been migrated to the Turnitin database. 

For more information, including on how to interpret "Similiarity Reports," see Purdue Innovative Learning's Turnitin information page.
