Turnitin software is available for Spring 2012

Turnitin has returned to Salve! All full-time faculty have been sent information on how to login to their account. Adjunct faculty who would like to use Turnitin need to email Annette Torrey with their request.

All faculty MUST include the following statement in their syllabus if they plan to use Turnitin at any time during the semester:

Salve Regina University has entered into a license agreement with Turnitin.com, a service that helps prevent plagiarism by comparing student papers with Turnitin’s database and Internet sources. Students who take this course are advised and agree that all assigned papers may be submitted to Turnitin.com. While student privacy is protected, papers submitted to Turnitin may become source documents in Turnitin’s reference database solely for the purpose of detecting plagiarism of such papers. Use of the Turnitin service is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use posted on Turnitin’s website. Salve Regina University is committed to preserving academic integrity as defined by the Academic Honor Code (http://web.salve.edu/offices/registrar/#15). Salve Regina University may from time to time enter into similar arrangements with other service providers.

Turnitin provides excellent training materials, both handouts and short video tutorials. Check out the tutorials to get started. Watch for upcoming CTL programming on how to use the software to improve student writing, handle the writing process, and get students involved in peer review.
