Turnitin AI

We use state-of-the-art artificial intelligence to help students, educators, and institutions advance integrity and learning outcomes, at scale.

We believe in human-centered AI

Our guiding principles for AI

AI is only as good as the principles on which it is built.
Turnitin is steadfast in its commitment to responsible AI.

AI should help improve learning outcomes and promote and protect academic integrity.

AI should be rooted in rigorous and peer-reviewed statistical and machine learning standards.

AI should be intentionally designed to mitigate the impact of potential biases.

AI should be continuously improved to make it more accessible, fair, and beneficial.

AI should be designed, developed, and tested by a wide range of learners and educators, not only engineers and AI scientists.

AI should be built by a diverse team.

AI should adhere to high standards of privacy and data ownership.

How we use AI

AI is used across our suite of assessment and integrity products


AI-assistance helps make grading easier, more efficient, and more fair by allowing instructors to score and give feedback on groups of similar responses at once. Read more.

Handwriting recognition

Some assignments and exams include handwritten calculations, codes, diagrams, proofs, and more. Turnitin AI technology identifies and transcribes these responses to take the administrative work out of grading. Read more.

Authorship verification

Advanced forms of plagiarism are difficult to identify from contract cheating to word spinning and bot writing. Using AI to compare writing styles, Turnitin insights help indicate authorship. Authorship profiles use forensic linguistics and bot writing identification uses detectors built from models such as GPT-3.

Document analysis

With AI, written and hardcopies of exam templates can be converted into electronic tests, helping streamline assessment. We combine vision-based machine learning with PDF parsing techniques to perform document understanding tasks, which are used to create an electronic version of the exam.

Essay analysis

Whether an essay is in draft-mode or in review, Turnitin AI flags areas for improvement and guides students through feedback. Essay analysis is performed with a suite of deep learning models, from BERT-based language models to CNNs, with advanced NLP tooling and statistical modeling.
