Turnitin is an online service, into which teachers and students submit student assignments into a large database. The text of a student assignment, or whatever else has been uploaded, is retained in the database. The database compares the text in the assignment against other database content which includes all of the World Wide Web, online e-journals, and previously uploaded assignments. Teachers and their students are then able to review the citation and paraphrasing used throughout the student assignment to see if any improvements are needed.
