Submit a Paper to an Assignment

Although Turnitin now accepts most formats, be aware that there are some restrictions on file size and file type.  Go through the documentation below.


Accessing Similarity Reports

The Similarity Report is the evaluation that Turnitin generates for your paper.  You may view the report if your instructor has given permission to do so for that assignment.

Log-in at

  1. Click on the class name from the student home page.
  2. Find the assignment to which the paper was submitted.
  3. Click View to open the Document Viewer.
  4. Click the Originality button in the top left-hand corner.
  5. Use the Match Overview side panel to the right of the window.

If "Not Available" appears to the right of the paper's title instead of the Similarity Report icon, then the assignment does not allow students to view the report.

Interpreting a Similarity Report

  • Turnitin checks your writing against a database. Any matches found will be flagged for the instructor of the course to review. This tool helps decide if those matches call for further scrutiny.
