Some assignments in Ember are set up to utilize Turnitin software. This software provides an originality checker and a markup tool (GradeMark). These tools are detailed below.
Assignments utilizing Turnitin are denoted as "Turnitin enabled" within the assignment prompt, and show special icons in the Gradebook and Submission Details views.
Viewing Turnitin Submissions
To view your Originality Report or text markup via the Turnitin tool, you'll need to access either the Gradebook or the Submissions detail view. It usually takes roughly 5 to 15 minutes for your document to be made available within the Turnitin software. Students will be able to see their Originality Report only after their instructor has graded that assignment.
Once your document is ready, a colored icon will appear with your submission indicating the percentage of similar text found in your Originality Report. The color will vary depending on the percentage of similar text found:
- Blue - no matching text
- Green - one word to 24% matching text
- Yellow - 25-49% matching text
- Orange - 50-74% matching text
- Red - 75-100% matching text
This icon will be available in the Gradebook  and Submission Details  views:
The OriginalityCheck performs textual comparison with Turnitin's database of live and archived Internet documents; a local repository of previously submitted papers; and a subscription repository of periodicals, journals, and publications; and then generates an Originality Report. The Originality Report, provided to both instructors and students, is a summary of matching or similar areas of text found in a submitted paper, along with a percentage of similar or matching text. More information on the TurnItIn Originality Report is available here.
Originality reports contain the following information:
 Tool select--toggle between different Turnitin tools

 Percentage of similar text found in the submission
 Scoring box--assignments can be scored directly from this window by [GE: This seems unfinished.]
