Turnitin AI Detection Disabled

In April 2023, Turnitin enabled a new feature in their Feedback Studio originality checking platform.
The feature is an artificial intelligence (AI) detector that aims to help instructors identify potential AI-generated passages. It provides instructors with a score based on Turnitin’s best guess indicating the likelihood of AI-generated passages in student submissions. This score is not visible to students.
After several months of using and testing the feature, in consultation with the Center for Teaching and Learning and Ecampus, UIT Academic Technologies disabled AI detection from our Turnitin instance on September 13, 2023. No other Turnitin Feedback Studio features were changed.
