Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This guide relates only to assignments created using the new Turnitin LTI assignment tool.

 

It can become difficult to find individual papers in the Turnitin Assignment Inbox when there are large numbers of students on the module.

There are a few features which make it possible to find specific papers.

There is a search box at the top of the Assignment Inbox.  This will allow searches for any of the criteria:

  • Author name
  • Paper Title
  • Paper ID
  • Uploaded (date & time)
  • Grade
  • Similarity

The search acts like a filter showing only those submissions that match the search text or numbers.

  • Uploaded (date & time)
  • Grade (will still work when Anonymity is on)

Filter by Group

When there are groups set up in the course an extra box will appear at the top of the Assignment Inbox with the text All Students.

This is a filter that will show, in the inbox, only the students that are members of selected group, “all students” or any of groups on the course, which will be listed in the drop down list.
