Staff guidance and resources for Turnitin

Turnitin is a web-based tool that supports students in the development of good academic practice when preparing written work for assessment. This text-matching tool allows academic staff to check students' work for improper use of sources or potential plagiarism by comparing it against continuously updated databases (including web-pages and student work).

Where to get further support

The TEL Support pages have a large number of articles offering support for academics regarding online assessment and feedback. For further help and guidance with using Turnitin, staff need to contact their Faculty’s Digital Media and e-learning Developers (DMeLDs). When they are not available, contact Digital Services in Learning Resources: digitalservices@brookes.ac.uk.

To follow in due course, we will provide two sets of guidelines:

  • Students: How to Learn from a Turnitin Report
  • Staff: How to Use Turnitin to Provide Feedback to Students.
