Assessments, Quizzes, & Grades
TurnItIn is CSU’s plagiarism detection tool.
Students submit a TurnItIn paper the same way they submit any paper in Canvas. If a similarity report matches a paper submitted to our old plagiarism tool, VeriCite, it will display “matched another paper at Colorado State University”, but no other information is available for these old papers.
CSU’s Academic Honesty and Integrity Information
Canvas has several ways to allow for learning accommodations for a student who has worked with CSU’s Student Disability Center to document a learning disability. An accommodation might include additional time to submit an assignment, excused from an assignment or extra time to finish a quiz.
Each fall and spring semester, instructors in entry level courses have the opportunity to participate in the Early Performance Feedback process.
At approximately the 5th week of the semester, participating instructions can enter a Y (yes) or an N (no) for each of their students into the Meets Expectations column in their Canvas gradebook.
This information is collected and shared with academic advisors and residence hall staff. These staff members reach out to students who have received one or more “N’s” to inform them of campus resources that can help them turn their academic progress around.
