Turnitin Draft Coach

Turnitin Draft Coach supports students in delivering high-quality academic writing, using text similarity checking to highlight the importance of research and correctly citing sources. Students can effortlessly run a report to check their drafts for similarity against our vast database. Any matches are individually highlighted and can be reviewed in the easy to navigate side panel.

We are continuing to develop drafting features to further enhance your student’s writing experience. To keep up to date on new additions, check out our product release notes.
