Abstract

Turnitin has become a popular software tool for identifying plagiarism. With the increase usage of the program, several concerns have been voiced about the ethical use of Turnitin in the classroom. Through a survey, faculty members' perspective of plagiarism is examined to determine when plagiarism software is used or not used and how the software is used to support the classroom assignments.
