For learners to access Turnitin, instructors must enable GradeMark and elect to make Turnitin Similarity Reports and/or GradeMark accessible to learners

Certain instructor-selected conditions apply to enable learner access to the Turnitin Feedback Studio site.

If granted access via folder set-up, to get to the Turnitin Feedback Studio site, learners must be in the Assignments area of a course, and must have submitted an assignment.

Links from inside the Submissions area

Learners select the link in the "Completion Status" area to access submission history associated with their assignment submission. If an evaluation has been published, learners can also select the link in the "Evaluation Status" column to access feedback related to the submitted assignment.*

Variations related to instructor Tii set-up:

  • If the "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores..." IS NOT selected and GradeMark IS NOT utilized, learners will NOT see any icons in the submissions/evaluation area of a Turnitin enabled assignments folder
  • if the "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores..." IS selected, and GradeMark IS NOT utilized, learners will see the "Turnitin Similarity" icon alone in the User Submissions area
  • if the "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores..." IS NOT selected but GradeMark IS being utilized learners will see a Turnitin GradeMark link for selection after the instructor has used GradeMark and published feedback to the assignment folder
  • if the "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores..." IS selected, and GradeMark IS being used, two icons will display to the learner (as in the image above)
  • selection of any icon brings the user to the Turnitin Feedback Studio site
