The Turnitin Workflow


Blackboard TEL Guides

Welcome to the Guide to Using Turnitin for Online Assessment

This guide covers how to set up Turnitin assessment areas for both formative and summative submissions. Turnitin integration is provided via Blackboard and automates many processes including:

  • Creation of new accounts for staff and students that have not used Turnitin before
  • Linking a Turnitin assessment from Blackboard
  • Student Submission
  • Online feedback and grading
  • Automatic import of grades to the Blackboard Grade Center
  • Automatic grade and feedback release

Follow each page in order for instructions on how to setup a Turnitin assignment and assign grades and feedback. If you experience any issues, you can view the Problems / Troubleshooting page to view the most common problems and their solutions.

* Please note that we only support Turnitin through the Blackboard integration. Turnitin Standalone is not supported.
