Turnitin Feedback Studio
In support of Academic Integrity at Piscataway High School, Turnitin Feedback Studio will be used to review the papers that students submit in their English courses. Turnitin does not determine whether plagiarism has taken place or not. Turnitin will also not be used as a punitive tool or measure. The instructor of this class will use the reports that Turnitin generates as a basis of discussion for the thorough evaluation of the authenticity and the originality of a student's work.
