How do I submit a Turnitin assignment?

You can submit Turnitin assignments directly in Canvas. Turnitin measures assignment originality and indicates what percent of your assignment matches internet sources.

Submitting a Turnitin assignment is similar to submitting a regular online assignment. However, the Turnitin LTI for Canvas only supports file uploads and text entry submissions; in file uploads, you can only upload one file per assignment.

Additionally, you may not be able to resubmit your assignment or submit the assignment past the due date. Be sure to view the assignment summary before submitting your assignment. If you are allowed to resubmit an assignment, all marks and comments associated with the original submission will be deleted. Turnitin resubmissions may take up to 24 hours to process.

You can submit your assignment as a text entry or upload any supported file type: Text (.txt), Microsoft Word (.doc/.docx), Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx), Postcript (.ps), Portable Document Format (.pdf), Rich Text Format (.rtf), HyperText Markup Language (.html), WordPerfect (.wp), Hangul (.hwp), or Open Office (.odt/.ods/.odp). You can also upload an assignment from Google Drive or Dropbox. Turnitin submissions require a minimum of 20 words, a maximum of 400 pages, and a file size maximum of 40 MB.

After submitting your assignment, your instructor may allow you to view your Turnitin results. If your instructor has added a Canvas rubric to your Turnitin assignment, it can only be viewed on the Submission Details page for that assignment (at any time) or your Grades page (after the rubric has been scored). You can access the Submission Details page by clicking on the name of the assignment in your Grades page.
