Turnitin LTI: New features for Markers

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

Turnitin changes for markers

For all assignments with a due date of 1st August 2022 or later we are using a new version of Turnitin (Turnitin LTI 1.3).

This applies to all Blackboard courses for the academic year 2022/3, but also coursework resubmission and resit exams, Summer 2022.

For markers the changes affect:

  • How you enter the assignment inbox
  • Management of papers in the assignment inbox
  • New Analytics Dashboard
  • Locating the Rubric and QuickMarks managers

All elements of the Feedback Studio are completely unchanged.


How to enter the assignment inbox

With Turnitin LTI there is no need to access the Turnitin assignment inbox via the control panel on the Blackboard menu.  Simply click on the submission point title.

Marking by group

The new assignment inbox incorporates the marking group functionality by allowing you to filter by groups that exist on your Blackboard module.

The Turnitin inbox has some new additional features such as a search function and a downloadable submission list.

Locating Rubric and QuickMarks Manager

The libraries tab has been removed from the Assignment Inbox in the new version of Turnitin. This means you will have to enter the Rubric/Form Manager and the QuickMarks Manager via a submitted paper in the Feedback Studio.
