Quickscan Dyslexia Screening Tool
The Turnitin plagiarism plugin allows staff to enable Turnitin functionality for essay type questions in newly created quizzes. Student responses for these question types will generate a similarity report and score, with staff having the option of displaying or hiding this from their students.
This plugin generates similarity reports which allows staff to check for matches against existing submissions in the Turnitin database, as well as internet sources.
Staff with edit access to a course can create a new quiz with this functionality as and when it is needed.
Originality Report Options > Store Student Papers :
Standard Repository: student papers submitted to this assignment are stored in Turnitin and checked against other students' submissions within this assignment, as well as other sources.
Note that this functionality can only be enabled for new quizzes. If you wish to use an existing quiz and enable Turnitin, please duplicate an existing quiz
Once a student has submitted, you can check the similarity scores for each student by clicking Review for the student attempt and scrolling down to the question. The Turnitin status and score will be displayed below the essay question.

If you Allow attachments in the individual essay quiz question Settings, this document will also be added to the Turnitin database and a similarity score generated for it, however, to prevent any incompatible file or display issues, we recommend students do not submit attachments. If you plan to allow students to attach files, please ensure set Allow any file type to Yes in the main quiz settings for your quiz.
