The district has purchased a license to Turnitin.com for the secondary schools.
This allows you to check student work originality, provide grade feedback directly on the paper, as well as anonymous peer review. When choosing to use Turnitin for your class, you MUST first decide whether you want to have students submit:
a) As an assignment within your Moodle Course. (Preferred Method)
b) Directly to Turnitin.com
You must choose one or the other, you cannot do both.

Turnitin is set up to accept documents that are less than 400 pages and less than 20 mb. The suggested formats are: MS Word, WordPerfect, PostScript, PDF, HTML, RTF, OpenOffice (ODT) and plain text.
They also allow you to copy and paste! Therefore, if students type up something on a Google Doc, they can simply copy the text and paste it into their Turnitin submission.
