Turnitin assignments are created in Moodle course spaces. In most departments, this is the responsibility of the Departmental Administration team. Creating an Turnitin assignment in Moodle automatically links it to the Turnitin system and databases for originality checking and reporting.
It is highly likely that your course is already using Turnitin, and that your Departmental Administration Team has added Assignment inboxes to the Moodle space. There is generally no further action required to start using Turnitin and Grademark, once the assignments have been submitted.
We recommend that as a marker you:
- Contact your Departmental Administration team to confirm that your courses are using Turnitin
- Contact the E-Learning Team for further information, advice and training
- Visit the Turnitin Feedback Studio course and resources in Moodle for information, demonstrations and user manuals
When Moodle courses are rolled over - in Late June - the links to Turnitin assignments are removed. This is because they cannot be re-used with a new cohort, as this can cause licencing, performance, and administration issues.
After Rollover, Moodle courses from the previous year are accessed via the Moodle Archive. Previous Turnitin assignments can be accessed from the archived Moodle course spaces.
Turnitin assignments from previous years can be archived by named Departmental Administrators in Turnitin Native.
