To view your Originality Report, click on the Originality Report icon to the right of the assignment (or the percentage listed next to your submittal).

By default, students cannot see their own Originality Reports. If you see the text 'Not Available' instead of an Originality Report icon in your portfolio, then your instructor has disabled the ability for students to view the Originality Report for this assignment. If you would like to view your report, contact your instructor.


Once you have accessed your originality report you will see your paper with highlights and this on the top left.

This indicates that you are viewing the originality report. You can easily switch between this and your grademark report from here.
