Changes Coming to Turnitin

August 10, 2016
Categories: turnitin, Uncategorized

As you may know, Turnitin is the plagiarism detection tool integrated within Canvas. The new integration provides greater control over assignment settings and allows access to Feedback Studio. The old Turnitin integration will be disabled on August 10, 2016. At this point, your Turnitin assignments should continue to accept student submissions, but the actual Turnitin tool itself will no longer work. To continue using Turnitin, you will need to re-create your assignments using the new integration process.

Please see the Canvas Guides below for step-by-step instructions for creating a Turnitin Assignment:

 Some important points to keep in mind when creating assignments with the new Turnitin tool:

  • Turnitin by default does not allow resubmissions.  If you want students to be able to resubmit the assignment, you must set “Originality Report generation and resubmissions” in the Turnitin Optional Settings to either “Generate reports immediately (resubmissions are allowed until due date)” or “Generate reports on due date (resubmissions are allowed until due date).”
  • If you use a Canvas rubric for an assignment you will have to grade the assignment using SpeedGrader.  If you want to use the Turnitin grading features (Turnitin now includes its own rubrics manager), you will have to create the rubric in Turnitin.
