Turnitin Draft Coach

Turnitin Draft Coach provides tools and coaching for students to pre-check their work before submission. This helps improve students’ academic writing and research skills by providing feedback on:

  1. text-similarity;
  2. citations in APA, Chicago, and MLA formats; and
  3. foundational grammar, mechanics, usage, and structure. And by using AI, Draft Coach can quickly identify citation and grammar issues across large bodies of work.

Unlike other checkers that only flag or auto-correct writing issues, Draft Coach provides detailed, in-app instruction on how students can correct these issues in real time, helping students think critically.

Draft Coach at ATSU is enabled in Google Docs, under the tab Extensions > Turnitin Draft Coach (on the top toolbar).
