How can we help?

We’re moving our guides on 9th March 2019. See a preview of their new home at

Enabling ETS e-rater®

Before instructors can use ETS e-rater® , there are two areas you need to change settings. One area is through our website and the other can be done inside of Moodle. 


Turnitin settings



Login to Turnitin as an Administrator. 
  Turnitin global customer:
Turnitin UK customer:


From the Administrator Homepage, find your institution's account that you have integrated with Moodle.

Select the Edit cog icon, use the Edit account settings link


From the Modify Account page, find the Allow these features: section.


Use the checkbox provided to enable Grammar check using ETS® e-rater® technology


When you've finished changing settings use the Submit button to save. Changing settings in Turnitin is just the first step. You'll have to also change some settings in Moodle before your instructors can access the grammar check feature. 

Moodle settings



As a Moodle Administrator, open the Site Administrator section of Moodle. Navigate to where you installed your Turnitin plugin. This will be at Site Administration > Plugins > Activity Modules > Turnitin Assignment 2



The Turnitin Assignment 2 settings page should be familiar from when you first installed and configured your Turnitin plugin. Find the Turnitin Account Settings section.


Find the Enable ETS© setting. By default, this setting is set to No. To allow your instructors to use ETS eRater grammar check, change it to Yes.

All done? Feel free to make any other changes while you are here. When you're ready, use the Save changes button.


Be sure to pass on our guidance to your instructors so they can enable ETS e-rater for their assignments too!
