Review Turnitin Assignment Submissions

Printer-friendly versionPDF version


Note: Turnitin became available in the Portal on August 15, 2016.

 Student submissions to Turnitin Assignments are viewable through the Content Area where the assignment is posted.  The current Portal integration of Turnitin does not provide access to grading, including Inline Grading commenting and mark-up, nor does it provide access to any feedback tools. As such, we recommend creating a parallel Blackboard Assignment (or using another similar tool) to provide those features. Instructions on how to create a Turnitin Assignment can be found on the Create a Turnitin Assignment page.
