Clearer Insights. Faster Feedback. Improved Outcomes.

Turnitin’s similarity report has been thoughtfully redesigned with an integrated, intuitive interface and new categorization of match types, making it easier to interpret and use as a formative learning tool to strengthen academic writing skills.

What’s New?

  • User-friendly, accessible design: Featuring a new intuitive interface, streamlined layout, and in-app guidance, the new report offers an enhanced and inclusive user experience, with a goal of achieving full WCAG 2.0 and 2.1 AA compliance by the end of the year.
  • Reimagined for clarity and focus: New match categories make the report easier to understand and pinpoint problems in student papers, saving educators time and effort in interpreting results.
  • Actionable insights for targeted feedback: More insightful integrity checks allow educators to quickly discern between intent and teachable moments, freeing up more time for meaningful and tailored feedback that addresses students’ specific needs.
  • Rapid innovation for evolving needs: Updated technology lays the groundwork for faster delivery of value-added features, equipping educators with the most advanced tools to support their teaching needs and maintain academic integrity.

Upgrading to the Enhanced Similarity Report

Enabling the new report is simple and won’t disrupt your existing workflows. As the Turnitin administrator, you retain full control over when to initiate the switch. Once you select our new admin setting, all users on the account, including students, will seamlessly transition to the new report. For more information, please refer to this help guide.

Note: The new report is now available for upgrade for customers on the following licenses: Originality Check, Originality Check Plus, SimCheck, Similarity, or standalone Originality. Feedback Studio customers will have the opportunity to transition to the new report when our new feedback and grading experience launches in early 2025.

On August 8th, the new report will become the default for all customers without a Turnitin Feedback Studio license. If you’re not ready to transition, you can opt out at any time via your admin account settings.
