New Turnitin Feature - Artificial Writing (AI) Writing Detection

As of Tuesday, April 4, 2023, Turnitin will introduce a new AI detector tool. This tool will automatically be available to students’ Similarity Reports accessed from eConestoga.

Like any tool, there are always limitations to its abilities. Turnitin’s AI Writing Detection is recommended for paragraph assessments written in English. It is not recommended for assessments using lists, outlines, code or poetry due to concerns of false positives.

As always, we recommend that Turnitin’s AI Writing Detection feature can be used as one piece of evidence for any academic incident investigation process. Don't hesitate to contact the Academic Integrity Office for additional support during the investigation process.

For further information, the Academic Integrity Office encourages you to read and review the details on the Turnitin Website.
