This guide relates only to assignments created using the new Turnitin LTI assignment tool.
If you need to edit assignment settings, this may need to be done
- via Settings in the Turnitin Assignment Inbox
- or in Blackboard by choosing Edit from the submission point contextual menu.
What can be edited by location
In the Turnitin Assignment Inbox click on the cog icon to open the Settings page.

- Allow late submissions
- Anonymous marking
- Attach a rubric
- Similarity Report Settings

Editing any settings in Turnitin will cause the Grade Centre column to be visible to students - you will need to hide the column in Blackboard as soon as you have edited the settings in Turnitin.
