Turnitin Plagiarism Prevention (for Assignments)
Support for this integration is provided by the D2L Brightspace support team. Please visit our contact page for contact information.
Turnitin is available for originality checking, but instructors no longer have access to the tool’s grading and feedback functionalities.
The short answer is "no". There is no way for an instructor to submit a students' paper in such a way that it is tied to the student's account.
It is possible to use a demo student account to submit the paper purely for the originality score, but please take into consideration that students are allowed to opt out of submitting their work to Turnitin - and so submitting their paper may not be an appropriate action.
If a student uploads a new submission after previously submitting a file to the assignment, the new submission will not be checked against any previous submission. This means the new submission will not receive an originality report score of 100%. This is true whether or not the file name is different, or if the assignment is submitted before or after the due date.
At this time, we do not recommend using Turnitin for a text submission assignment. The assignment submissions will not display as expected in Turnitin Feedback Studio. If you wish to use Turnitin, please use a file-based submission instead.
