Turnitin Similarity is a plagiarism detection tool. It generates reports after checking students’ assignment submissions against institutional and online databases. If there are instances where a student's writing is similar to, or matches against, any of the sources, Turnitin will highlight it for instructors or TAs to review. Turnitin also flags anomalies such as hidden text and replaced characters.

Note: A project to import prior SafeAssign submissions from UNM Learn into the UNM Turnitin institutional database is ongoing.
