What the Similarity Report covers in PowerPoint Slides
When students submit PowerPoint slides to Turnitin the Similarity Report will include all the editable text on the slides.
Any text in the Notes section will not be included in the similarity check if a PowerPoint file is submitted.
You may want to make sure those Notes are available for to the Turnitin Similarity check. In that case students will need to Export the slides to a PDF using specific settings.
Once the PDF has been created it can be submitted to Turnitin where the Similarity Report will include the text in the Notes as well as the slides.
Please direct your students to our student facing guide Including PowerPoint Notes in Turnitin Similarity check which gives step by step instructions on how to do this.
