An Originality Report provides information about your assignment including:

  • Submission information
  • Similarity index (percentage matches for text that matches other sources)
  • The original submission with matching text highlighted

Report Availability:

The report will be available either within few minutes after the first submission or 24 hours if you have already submitted previously.

Accessing the report:

Locate the relevant Turnitin link and under the "Similarity" header, click on the percentage or the colour coded box to view the Originality Report.  The Originality Report will open in a new window.

Note: If the Icon is a grey box with dashes, please allow additional time for the report to be generated.  If there is no color coded box, but there is text that reads "not available", please contact the Turnitin Officer for assistance.

For further details about interpreting originality reports, please review the UWS Turnitin student instructions. Alternatively, review the video.
