More than 20 years ago, four University of California students built a peer-review application that helped students receive feedback from their classmates. In preparing work for peer review, they identified text similarities across student content and found a new challenge to tackle: ensuring the highest levels of integrity of written work. And thus, Turnitin was founded.
Since then, Turnitin has helped ensure integrity in writing for 40 million students at all educational levels in 15,000 institutions across 140 countries. Today, Turnitin’s purpose is to empower students to do their best, original work across all subjects and assessment types.
