Turnitin.com provides a service for checking academic work for possible sources of plagiarism. Your tutor will provide details on what they consider plagiarism to be and how to maintain your academic integrity. NMIT has a policy of allowing students to check your Turnitin reports prior to formally submitting your assignments - and it all happens within NMIT Moodle.

Turnitin can only generate reports for the following file formats: Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx); Plain text (.txt); Adobe Acrobat PDF (.pdf); Rich Text Format (.rtf); PostScript (.ps); HTML (.html, htm).

If you use a different word processor (e.g. Microsoft Works, Open or Libre Office, iWork etc.) you should be able to save your assignment in one of these formats and then submit it.
