Academic integrity solution provider Turnitin has partnered with admissions platform Kira Talent to offer a plagiarism checking solution for admissions applications.

The Kira Talent platform combines customized competency-based questions with existing application materials (e.g., grades, test scores and essays) to provide what the company calls a holistic view of each applicant. The platform allows applicants to record timed video and written responses to questions. Through the Kira Talent Plagiarism Checker, all uploaded documents and written responses within the platform can be scanned by Turnitin's software to identify cases of potential plagiarism.

"The heat of the recent college admissions scandal has prompted schools to rethink their admissions process," commented Emilie Cushman, founder and CEO of Kira Talent, in a statement. "Our partnership with Turnitin will help level the playing field for applicants entering the hyper-competitive higher education landscape, bringing us one step closer in our mission to make admissions fair."
