This 25-30 minute course will introduce you to the concept of academic integrity, and how its principles relate to the proper use and documentation of sources in your academic work. We recommend that all students review this tutorial to deepen their understanding of what plagiarism is and how to prevent it.
The St. Kate's IT Department has provided access to two software programs that will assess the originality, grammatical and mechanical aspects of your writing. (Note that librarians do not provide technical assistance for these programs).
Grammarly is a tool used to correct grammar, spelling and punctuation errors, word choice, and sentence structure. Grammarly can be freely downloaded with your St. Kate's email address.
Turnitin Feedback Studio is a tool for checking the originality of written content you submit as assignments within Canvas. Turnitin provides information about the originality of one's writing in order to prevent plagiarism, and now has AI writing detection. Turnitin must be enabled by your instructor in your course management system.
The ServiceNow links below provide information about these programs (you must login with your St. Kate's username and password to access ServiceNow).
