Integrating Assignments with Turnitin

Turnitin is an Internet-based plagiarism-prevention service that checks the submissions made by learners for unoriginal content. Using the Teamie - Turnitin integration, you can check the similarity score of a learner's submission along with the report of the sources from which the content is being used in the submission.

Note 1: Turnitin Integration can be enabled only for assignments and NOT for online quizzes.

Note 2: Turnitin integration will not work for any files picked from Google drive. Only files uploaded directly from the user's computer can be used for Turnitin plagiarism check. Turnitin doesn't check images at present and compare the learner's submission with its available resources to generate the originality report. The file size is limited to 100 MB.

2. Click to expand the Submission setting of the assignment.

3. Under Files subsetting, click the Enable Turnitin checkbox.

Please note that learners will only be allowed to submit one document, that can be evaluated by Turnitin. It will need to be less than 100 MB in size, with one of the extensions (doc, docx, html, htm, txt, rtf, ps, pdf, ppt, pptx, pps, wpd).

4. Two options will be shown, once you enable the Turnitin setting.

5. Enable Allow Students to view the similarity scores before submission subsetting in case you wish to allow learners to see the similarity score for their draft attempts from Turnitin. This can then allow them to make changes to their attempts before submitting them for evaluation and avoid plagiarism.

6. Enable Allow Students to view the Originality Report subsetting to allow learners to view the Originality Report for their attempt from Turnitin.

Enabling Turnitin on Assignments will disable the following non-supported submission methods:

  • Audio submissions
  • Text submissions
  • Google submissions
  • OneDrive submissions

7. Publish the assignment, once you have made the necessary changes.
