How do I use TurnItIn?

What do I need to do?

Course administrators support the creation of assignment submissions and subsequently turning on Tii and any 'draft' requirements.

If you do not have a Course Administrator, you can follow these steps below to turn on Turnitin and enable drafts to be submitted as part the submission process:

  1. Whilst creating an 'Assignment' click the 'Turnitin' tab at the top of the page.
  2. Check the box 'Enable GradeMark for this folder'
  3. Check the box 'Enable Originality Check for this folder'
  4. Check the box allowing students to see their score
  5. Once you have checked the box 'Enable Originality Check for this folder' when creating an assignment, you will need to click the 'More Options in Turnitin' button.
  6. Click the 'Optional Settings' button in the window that opens.
  7. Click the first optional drop down box and select the 'Do not store the submitted papers'
  8. Please note that 'draft' assignments should not be tied to a 'Grade Item' in the assignment creation process, only summative assignments should be linked.
