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 will be using a new version of Turnitin that will integrate with Blackboard via a LTI integration.
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 will 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.
For more information see our guide: Turnitin LTI – Access and View Assignments
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.
For more information see our guide: Turnitin LTI – Handling multiple markers
Manage papers in the assignment inbox
The Turnitin inbox has some new additional features such as a search function and a downloadable submission list.
See our full guide for more details Turnitin LTI: Searching and Filtering the Assignment Inbox
It is now possible to download a submission list which will show the name of non-submitters even when anonymity is turned on.
The Submission List is available via Download All, our guide for more details Turnitin LTI: Exporting grades and submission list

New Statistics Panel
The Analytics tab replaces Class Stats, and offers a comprehensive collation of statistical information on submissions and marking. All the information can be downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.
Please see our guide for more details: Turnitin LTI – Learning Analytics Dashboard
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.
Enter the Rubric and QuickMark Manager via Feedback Studio
Open any submitted paper and open the relevant marking panel.
If there are no submissions on the course yet it is possible to either:
- Go to a submission in the previous year’s course
- Create a submission point and submit to it in your practice course
Enter Rubric Manger via Turnitin LTI settings
It is possible to open the Rubric Manager via the Turnitin LTI Assignment Inbox settings.
Click on the cog icon in the top right-hand corner and then Optional Settings.
When the “Attach a rubric” option is checked the Launch Rubric Manger button will appear.
This launches the version of the rubric manager that was previously accessed via the Rubric/Form Manger tab.
