Submissions Inbox

Table of contents
No headers

Once an assignment submission has been made to Blackboard Direct, the Turnitin Submission Inbox will contain your submitted paper. If your instructor has allowed students to view the Similarity Report for assignments, your access to the Similarity Report depends on the report generation speed that your instructor has chosen. The report will appear either immediately or on the assignment's due date. If the report is set to generate on the due date, pending will appear until this time.


A percentage will appear under the bar chart icon once the report has been generated. If your instructor has used GradeMark to grade the paper, then once the post date passes, students will see a comment icon that will open GradeMark when clicked.
