Change Optional Settings on Turnitin
There are a number of different settings you can select on Turnitin. For instance, you can choose to allow for late submissions, for students to resubmit until the assessment closes, access the similarity score, add a rubric, and more. Turnitin's support centre explores these settings in detail. To make sure you have the right settings on Turnitin:
- Click into the Turnitin assessment
- Select 'Settings'
- Click on 'Additional settings'
- Make any changes Click 'submit'
Share the assessments with students
- Students can access the assessment through their Journey tabs, as long as you've made the assessment visible.
- You can share the assessment link into your materials or the Community.
- In the editor, click on the + icon and select the assessment.
Add Feedback in the Turnitin Feedback Studio
If you are an educator and want to add feedback in GradeMark (Turnitin's marking function), there are two main ways of doing this:
- Write or copy & paste the text into the comment area (the box under the 'edit text' banner)
- Attach a 'link' to an online source, such as a google document. You can do this using the hyperlink icon (the two interlinking circles) located below the 'edit text' banner.
- There is a limitation with the Turnitin's LTI integration for multipart assignments. Instead of uploading multiple documents to one assignment, students will instead need to merge all content into one document for multipart assignments.
- If you're asking your students to upload various file formats, we would instead recommend creating multiple assignment links within Turnitin for a cleaner upload.
As Turnitin is an external tool, if you are having trouble editing the assignment/ doing anything once you're in Turnitin, we recommend contacting your internal university support or review Turnitin's support centre
