Turnitin Plagiarism Prevention (for Assignments)
External tools are temporarily restricted in Winter 2023 Brightspace course shells, due to technical updates scheduled over the Winter Break to support the university's name change.
Updated external tools will be available for use in early January. Additional details will be communicated as dates are finalized.
Support for this integration is provided by the D2L Brightspace support team.

e-rater grammar feedback technology
Automatically checks submissions for grammar, mechanics, style and spelling errors; providing in-depth feedback. Learn more about e-rater from Turnitin's support resource, external link.
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.
