Plagiarism Detection Tool


Turnitin is a plagiarism screening tool that is integrated into CityU’s Brightspace courses. Faculty can customize Turnitin settings when creating or editing assignments in Brightspace.

CityU encourages faculty to enable features that allow students to submit drafts and review their own Similarity Reports. Through this process students can improve their writing and citation skills.

CityU’s Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure, should faculty need to review them, are available in every online course shell in the Academic Integrity module. Faculty will also find the Academic Integrity Form accessible through this module.

For more information on configuring Turnitin for an assignment, and on how to interpret the Similarity Reports, visit the Faculty Help Center to view a CityU training video and access Turnitin how-to guides.
