Check this box before assignment submission

Jump to solution

Does anyone know how University of Birmingham added a plagiarism statement / pledge checkbox that the student must agree to before they can submit an assignment?

Specifically, the green bit in this image:

Is this an admin /account setting, a plugin, a custom bit of Javascript made for Birmingham (couldn't find it in their js files), or just something really obvious that I've missed? Smiley Happy

Yup...that is a part of the Turnitin API settings that are configured at the Account level (in "Settings" of the Administrative Pages of Canvas).

I think this might be part of their TurnItIn integration.

I have no idea, but that is pretty cool! You might want to share this with the Canvas Developers​ to see if they have any ideas - they are the back end Canvas programmers.

Ah yes, thank you. I was thrown by the fact that the interface doesn't look like a TurnItIn assignment as I've seen them - presumably that's an LTI vs. API difference.

 @d_ellis ​, this can also be added at the course level (in Settings):

However, the plagiarism message added at the account level trumps the course level message. So, if a teacher chooses to add a customized message, it will only appear to students if no message has been entered at the account level.

Also, we wanted our message to include a URL that directed students to our Plagiarism Tutorial, but unfortunately the text box doesn't support clickable URLs. When we added a URL, the associated HTML code showed in the message, so we wound up removing the URL.
