Setting up a Turnitin assignment on Blackboard

Filed under: Uncategorized — jobadge @ 11:14 am

Turnitin Assignments work best when a new one is made for each year and each peice of work that needs to be submitted. Re-using assignments from previous years can cause problems with re-sit students not being able to submit work and the links to the submitted assignments can break.

Setting up a new assignment is straightforward. Follow the instructions on the Turnitin UK support site.

Under ‘more options’ add the following standard text as the ‘special instructions’ (this includes some HTML code to insert line breaks and improve the layout).

The DEADLINE for submission is TIME, DAY, DATE, YEAR.<br>
If you believe you have unintentionally submitted an incomplete or incorrect file then you should contact the convenor AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.<br>
IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING PLAGIARISM <br>

By submitting your work using this link you are declaring: “I confirm that I understand the University’s regulations regarding plagiarism and that this is my own work. It has not been copied from any other person’s work (published or unpublished), and has not previously been submitted for assessment.”

other settings in ‘more options’ can generally be left at the default, but please make sure you select the option for students NOT to view the originality report.

To hide a previous assignment, click ‘MODIFY’ next to the assignment, then ‘ADAPTIVE RELEASE’ and choose a date after which the assignment will not be displayed. Blackboard may protest, but you can ignore this.

Filed under: Uncategorized — jobadge @ 12:46 pm
If a student inadvertently submits the wrong version of a piece of work  to a Turnitin Assignment they will not be able resubmit their work until you remove the original submission. This can be done quickly by any instructor. The short video below show s the steps to do this.
CONTROL PANEL> TURNITIN ASSIGNMENT> VIEW >find the student submission, select the check box next to their name and click DELETE. The student can now resubmit their work. Remember that this will show as a 100% to the first submission. This can be removed to see any underlying matches by viewing the originality report and deselecting the first submission as a source (it is not permanently removed).
Instructions can also be viewed on Turnitin’s help centre: http://www.turnitin.com/static/knowledge_base/deleting_submissions_from_inbox_newtii.html
