How do I create a Turnitin assignment?




Beginning Spring Semester 2017...

Turnitin and Canvas have changed the way in which the plagiarism checker, Turnitin, is enabled for an assignment in your online Canvas course. In the past, there was an issue where some student work would become disconnected from an assignment. This issue has been solved, but it does mean a change in how you enable Turnitin for each assignment in a course.

A comparison of the "old" step-by-step procedures vs the "new" procedures can be found in the following knowledge article:

There are also three new articles that go more in-depth for instructors on using Turnitin.
