AI-Detection Software – Status Report

First Posted:
Last Updated:

Turnitin – the anti-plagiarism LTI installed in UNF’s instance of Canvas – recently added an AI-Detection feature described by the vendor as having the ability to “evaluate student writing for the presence of AI-generated text.” UNF has not turned this feature on because, while the creators of various AI-Detection tools assert that they can accurately identify AI-generated content with 98% to 99% accuracy, third-party evaluations reveal higher rates of false positives associated with these tools. CIRT’s own internal testing also revealed high rates of false negatives (instances in which tools fail to detect the use of artificial intelligence altogether).
