When using Turnitin LTI assignments, Blackboard Grade Centre Smart views do not work as expected.
Clicking on a link to Turnitin from the Grade Centre opens the whole of the Turnitin Assignment inbox, not just the student papers selected when setting up the Smart View.
A work around for this is by using groups. Groups can be used to create a smart view for the student selection within the Grade centre, and can also then be used in each Turnitin Assignment to filter the students.
Set Up Group Smart View
In your Blackboard Course create some new manual enrol groups. Do not make them available to students.
Select Create Smart View
Add the student sample to the group.
In the Grade Centre Smart View Menu add as a favourite. The name you gave the group will be the smart view title, with the prefix ident ‘Group:’
External Examiners will then be able to see it in the Grade Centre area of the contol panel to filter the Grade Centre.
Filter Group in Turnitin LTI
You will be able to use your groups in Turnitin to filter each assignment inbox by group.
Access each assignment through the grade centre smart view filter or the submission point.
By default the inbox will show All Students. You can filter the students shown by using the drop down group filter menus.
