The CDT department suggests instructors change some of the default settings for Turnitin assignments in their courses.
If you would like to view a video going through these settings, you can view How to Configure a Turnitin Assignment
Set up your assignment as you would normally in Canvas, with two notable exceptions:
After page settings are saved, the button shown below will appear on the assignment page. Click the button to open the Turnitin tool in a new tab. (Important: This step syncs the Turnitin assignment; if it is not done, students will not be able to submit!)
From the Turnitin page that opens, click on Settings.
Click on Optional Settings.
Leave this as "Standard paper repository"
(exception: if they are submitting a paper more than once and this is NOT the last time they are submitting the paper)
We suggest checking the box to allow late submissions. If you have a student with accommodation, this will allow a submission after the set due date.
We suggest changing this to "Generate reports immediately (students can resubmit until due date): After 3 rebsubmissions, reports generate after 24 hours"
Don't forget to submit!
