Turnitin Similarity is a plagiarism detection tool. It generates reports after checking students’ assignment submissions against institutional and online databases. In addition, submissions will be evaluated by Turnitin for the likelihood of AI-generated content. 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: Legacy submissions from SafeAssign, Blackboard’s plagiarism detection tool (in use at UNM August 2015 – May 2022), were imported into the UNM Turnitin institutional database.
