Assignment Settings

Once the Turnitin LTI assignment is launched, click the Settings tab within the Turnitin LTI Tool to adjust the assignment dates and assignment's maximum grade, as well as customize the assignment further.

 

Basic LTI Assignment Settings

 

Max grade

 

Set a point value for the assignment to allow a grade to be set by rubrics (if used) and be sent to the grade book. For example, if you set the max grade as 100, this is the highest grade your student can receive.

 

Start date

 

The start date is the date and time students can begin submitting to the assignment.

 

Due date

 

The due date is the date and time students' papers are due for the assignment.

 

Feedback release date

 

The feedback release date is the date and time students can begin viewing the comments and grades you have left on their papers. Feedback can only be released after the due date.

 

Optional LTI Assignment Settings

 

To begin customizing the LTI assignment, click Optional settingsThe information below will help you to understand the settings available and correctly customize the assignment.

 

Note: Should you find that any optional settings are unavailable, please contact your Turnitin administrator who may be able to enable features within their Turnitin account.

 

Allow late submissions?

 

Choose Yes to allow late submissions for the assignment; students will be able to submit papers after the due date. Choose No if you prefer that students submit before or on the due date only.

 

Compare submitted papers against the following sources...

 

These search options allow you to select which Turnitin repositories students' submissions will be checked against when processing Originality Reports for papers. The originality score may decrease if a repository option is deselected.

 

Originality Report generation and resubmissions

 

Generate reports immediately (resubmissions are not allowed)

Originality Reports for all submissions will be generated immediately. Students cannot resubmit papers. If, for any reason, a resubmission is required when this setting is selected, you must manually delete a student's submission from the assignment inbox to allow the student to submit again.

 

Generate reports immediately (resubmissions are allowed until due date)

This option is typically used when students are self-reviewing and revising their submissions and able to view the Originality Report. Originality Reports will be generated immediately for each student's initial submission to this assignment.

 

  • Students may resubmit as often as they wish until the assignment's due date.
  • Originality Reports for a second or subsequent submission will generate after 24 hours of submission.
  • As all previous submissions are removed upon resubmission, only the latest submission is available to both you and the student.
  • Originality Reports will regenerate within an hour of the due date and time to allow student submissions to compare against one another within the assignment.
  • This report regeneration may cause a change in a paper's originality score. No resubmissions are allowed after the due date and time of the assignment.

 

Generate reports on due date (resubmissions are allowed until due date)

Originality Reports will not be generated for any submission until the due date and time of the assignment is reached. Students may resubmit as many times as needed until the due date and time, but will not receive reports during this period. No resubmissions are allowed after the due date and time of the assignment

 

 

Exclude bibliographic materials from Similarity Index for all papers in this assignment?

 

Choose Yes to exclude text appearing in the bibliography, works cited, or references sections of student papers from being checked for matches when generating Originality Reports. Choose No to include them.

 

You can overwrite this setting in individual Originality Reports. To learn more about Originality Report interpretation and how this exclusion can help to refine a report, click here.

 

Exclude quoted materials from Similarity Index for all papers in this assignment?

Enable Translated Matching?

 

Translated matching is an optional service offered by Turnitin, which allows your students to submit content in a non-English language, whilst retaining the ability to match against our vast database of English language content.

 

When Translated Matching is enabled for an account, Turnitin will identify the language that a paper has been written in. This paper will then be fully translated into English. The resulting English language content is then matched against all the databases that have been activated for the assignment. If a match is found, this will be displayed alongside any matches we have found in the non-translated version of the paper.

 

Translated matching currently supports the following languages:

 

Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian Bokmal, Norwegian Nyorsk, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish.

 

Enable anonymous marking?

 

Choose Yes to obscure student names within the assignment inbox, Originality Report and GradeMark until the assignment's feedback release date. Student names may be revealed for an assignment by clicking on the anonymous marking enabled button to reveal the author's name for the paper. Choose No to view students' names at all times. If a student's name is revealed when anonymous marking is enabled, an audit trail will be created, where your Turnitin administrator will receive a notification.

 

Click here to learn how to configure anonymous marking as an administrator or click here to learn how to use it as an instructor.

 

Warning: If you find that this setting is unavailable to you, please contact your administrator to activate the anonymous marking feature in their account settings. You cannot enable anonymous marking after the start date of the assignment has passed.

 

 

Exclude small matches?

 

Choose Yes to exclude matches that are not of sufficient length (determined by you) from being considered when generating Originality Reports. Choose No to include matches of all sizes. You can overwrite this setting in individual Originality Reports. Once Yes has been selected, a box will appear, where you can exclude matches by word count or by percentage.

Allow students to view Originality Reports?

 

Choose whether you would like your students to view the Originality Reports for their submissions to this assignment. This option gives instructors more flexibility and control when creating assignments. Choose Yes to allow students to view reports and No to disallow access.

 

Submissions to this assignment will be stored in...

 

Standard paper repository

Student papers will be checked against other institutions' student submissions.

 

Institution paper repository

Student papers will only be checked against other student papers within your institution. With this setting enabled, if a student from your institution submits a paper matching a paper of a student from another institution, Turnitin will not identify this match.

 

Do not store the submitted papers

A similarity report will still be generated for paper submissions, but your students' papers will not be stored in the Turnitin standard paper repository or the institution's paper repository for future comparison.

 

Student's choice of paper repository

Students have the freedom to choose where they would like their paper to be saved. It is advised that this setting is only used if you do not intend to use Turnitin to assess originality.

 

Warning: If you find that this setting is unavailable to you, please contact your administrator to request it to be enabled in their account settings. If your administrator subsequently finds that the setting is also unavailable to them, it is recommended that they speak to their Turnitin account manager.

 

Add PeerMark assignments

 

PeerMark™ is a peer review assignment tool. Instructors can create and manage PeerMark assignments that allow students to read, review, and evaluate one or many papers submitted by their classmates. With the advanced options in PeerMark instructors can choose whether the reviews are anonymous or attributed, decide if students should be excluded from reviews, or pair students to assign students specific papers to review.

Choose Yes to allow PeerMark assignments for this assignment. This will add two new PeerMark tabs to your Turnitin LTI tool.

Attach a rubric to this assignment

Alternatively, select Launch Rubric Manager to create a new rubric.
