I have recently heard that Turnitin checks for plagiarism from plagiarism checkers online. Does anyone know if this is true? I used some of these checkers and am worried that my essays may now be marked as plagiarised...

Yes it could. That's why when you submit it you need to submit it with the option to not save your writing in their database. If you didn't do that, contact your institution.

I hope the OP hasn't been waiting a year and a half just to hear that answer.
