Compare Drafts and Revisions with Turnitin

Turnitin is a great resource that teachers have come to rely on for digitally grading and reviewing papers. Like many of those teachers, I learned the basics and failed to educate myself on some of the hidden functionality.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve commented on the wrong draft.
