How do I manage Turnitin assignments?

Turnitin is the leading academic plagiarism detector, utilized by teachers and students to avoid plagiarism and ensure academic integrity. Your institution may have a Turnitin account that you can use to create Turnitin assignments for your students.

Canvas uses the Turnitin LTI for assignment submissions, which allows you to manage all Turnitin content and settings within Canvas. The LTI also supports OriginalityCheck, GradeMark, and PeerMark. For more details about the Turnitin LTI tool, please see the Instructor LTI Interface Manual in the Turnitin LTI page.

Turnitin Login: In the Turnitin LTI, Canvas authenticates student, instructor, and TA roles. You do not need to create a separate Turnitin account to access Turnitin in Canvas. However, if you choose to use the Turnitin website, you will need to use the password reset feature to create a password to the Turnitin web interface.

Student Submissions: Once you have created and published the assignment, students submit their assignments directly in Canvas. Please note that the Student View does not support Turnitin assignments as the Test Student.

Course Copies: If you copy a Turnitin assignment from another course, you will have to re-enable the External Tool Submission Type for each assignment, otherwise the assignment will not be connected to Turnitin.

Error Messages: Turnitin may occasionally generate an error message about the status of a submission. If a submission includes an error, you can view the message by hovering over the Turnitin icon. If the file failed to resubmit to Turnitin, you can download the student submission and reupload it to Turnitin. If you have questions please contact your Canvas administrator.

Note: The Turnitin LTI is responsive to the size of your browser window. Your view of the Turnitin LTI may vary from the images shown in this lesson.
