Our consortium is considering making TurnItIn a requirement to use for any course that has assignments that require research papers, essays, short reports, basically any type of writing assignment where TurnItIn may be applied.  Some see this as an infringement on "academic freedom" of the faculty.  Others see this as an enhancement to the academic integrity policy.  I am inquiring as to how many of your colleges make this a required use and what type of requirements are  involved such as a stated % of similarity that would cause further examination.
