How can we help?

Managing Students

The student list page allows an instructor to access the class portfolio (a collection of submissions, Similarity Reports, peer reviews, and marked papers for the class) for each student, drop or add students, block students from accessing the class, or contact the list of students individually or via Email. 


1. To access the assignment inbox, click the All Classes tab, which will direct you to the Instructor homepage.

Locking and Unlock Students


Students can be locked or unlocked from a class once they have logged into Turnitin with their user profile.


1. Click the lock icon to toggle the student from unlocked (lock not closed) to locked (lock closed with red background) if needed.


2. When changing the lock status, a dialog box will pop up asking you to confirm this change. Click OK to continue, or Cancel to abort.


Note: When a student is locked, the student profile can no longer access the class.

Removing a Student


1. Click the drop icon to the right of the student Email address to remove the student from a class. Accidentally dropped students may be re-added manually, but must be added under the same Email address to regain access to the previous submissions that were made. 


Warning: Students should be dropped from a class only if you are absolutely certain that the student user profile and its submissions are no longer needed. Dropped students cannot re-add themselves to the class even with the class ID and enrollment key.
