From the summary prospectuses (prospecti?)
Total Stock Market Index:
"During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 5%"
For the Total International Stock Market Index fund:
"During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 3%."
Hope that helps.
It's all in the prospectus. And they've made the prospectuses (prospecti?) very simple to understand with their recent (few years ago?) attempts to write the prospectus using "plain talk".
The goal of investing is not to beat the market, but rather to beat inflation.
