Turnitin frequently engages with instructors on how they use our suite of tools. We hear from them often their perceptions, informed by their expertise, of its effectiveness. However, we receive less frequent feedback from the constituents for whom our services are ultimately meant to help: the learners. Therefore, Turnitin conducted a survey in early June, 2015, with the explicit goal to ask students the following:
What are their attitudes towards Turnitin?
How has it helped them learn more about the value of originality and proper citation practices?
How has Turnitin’s online grading features assisted them in their writing?
