Turnitin – immediate Similarity Reports for up to three resubmissions
Previously, on Turnitin assignments where students were allowed to submit and resubmit drafts up until the due date, if students made a resubmission they had to wait 24 hours for the Similarity Report to generate.
Turnitin have now changed this:
Students can now view their initial Similarity Report, then revise and resubmit their work up to three times, without having to wait 24 hours for an updated report. After three resubmissions have been made, the 24-hour report generation wait time will be restored.
Instantaneous similarity results give students the formative support they need to master paraphrasing and citation conventions efficiently.
This feature is, of course, only available if resubmissions are enabled for an assignment i.e. if under Generate Similarity Reports for student submission you have selected Immediately (can overwrite reports until due date).
We have updated our Turnitin user guides for students accordingly.
Turnitin iPad app
A new release of the iPad app was made available in the Apple app store in January. This includes fixes for bugs which were affecting Rubrics and Grading Forms.
As ever, please ensure that you have finished marking and sync’d all downloaded papers before updating your app.
For information on using the app, see our support page: Turnitin iPad app.
