Plagiarism – University of California, Davis
Anti-Plagiarism Tool “Turnitin” Tapped by UC Davis for Canvas Integration
Turnitin is in the process of being added to UC Davis’ Canvas. At the request of faculty as well as some concerned students, UC Davis decided to purchase the anti-plagiarism software. Understanding the use of Turnitin is crucial in implementing such software since Turnitin is not, on its own, an indicator of plagiarism, but rather an indicator that a conversation between professor and student needs to happen.
Many actions have already been taken by the university to reduce plagiarism, such as proper citation methods, but the addition of a tool can only be considered a “good thing,” according to Matt Traxler, the associate vice provost for academic planning.
