Turnitin is back to deliver our latest teaching resources and product updates for making the teaching process both quicker and easier. Below you may also find the webinars and user summit conducted by our team in collaboration with educational technologists and instructors.
With the return to somewhat normalcy, I would like to be able to have the submission be open to both on line and physical. I have had some students that print out the assignment and then want to physically turn in that assignment. I can go to grades and put in the grade for that assignment, but when I try to message students that have not turned in the assignment, they get notified as well even though they physically turned in the assignment.
Can I make an assignment both physical and on-line submission?
Designing and delivering assessments is an important part of student learning and teaching efficacy. In any environment, but especially in online learning, academic integrity is key to an accurate assessment of student knowledge. When developing your own remote assessments here are a few of the most important elements educators need to consider.
It is a monthly update from Turnitin Team. Learn about upcoming webinars and training sessions, discover the most useful resources for remote and distant learning/teaching, and the latest company news.
We at Turnitin support education and learning around the globe. To ensure the integrity of global education and meaningfully improve learning outcomes we produce huge amounts of valuable information and resources for instructors and students. Webinars, articles, eBooks, training sessions, infographics are just some of the resources you may find on our website and that we are glad to share with you.
I will be glad to share available resources and upcoming events in this group for you to be able to attend them and learn more about assessments with integrity and how Turnitin products may assist you.
When we go into the moderate on the new quizzes it would be really nice if somehow there could be a sign that we have already adjusted a score. Either a color change on the attempt or a little symbol somewhere. It is very time consuming to go through assignments and adjust scores to have kids turn in work late and not be able to see what scores I’ve already looked at. Thank you for considering this.
When I try to open zoom in one of my canvas courses, an error message appears saying I am an unrecorgnized user. I have a valid zoom account. I have checked to see if I am signed in. I pulled zoom into my navigation area according to the directions from canvas. Now I get the following message:
User does not exist: email@example.com.
Error Code1001- INT_f282bcd54b244c88
I don't know what to do. My email address is correct.
I am a special education co-teacher. I have 6 canvas courses I am a teacher in with the general education teacher and in 5 I can add observer teachers of record for special education students and the observer automatically is added to my people in the course.
However, I have one course where the observers are added but do no automatically get added and must accept when they log into canvas. How is this different? I want to be able to add the observers automatically without them having to to accept so I can link their caseload students to them.
I generally make videos to help faculty learn to use technology and learning management software. However, knowing that there are a lot of parents and students going online or hybrid for the first time this semester, I decided to make a Professor Frazzled video just for them.
This video shares 5 tips to help students succeed in an online class. And, of course, it also features a puppet. I hope you find this useful.
How can I create multiple choice answers with a letter preceeding the question. ⨀ A. portray the Soviet Union as an aggressive force that could be controlled only by an alliance of world powers ⨀ B. describe the influence the Marshall Plan of 1947 had on the creation of NATO

Additionally, if you selected the playback rate selector (playbackRateSelector) when you hit "+" it selects faster and "-" it selects slower. However, on a Swedish mapped keyboard "+" is actually a minus, and the key to its right (typically marked "\") is actually a plus!
Let’s be honest, students don’t often notice a missing assignment without some kind of nudge or reminder. Canvas alerts students to missing assignments, but a glaring “0” score in the Gradebook might be the prompting they need.
However, many educators forget to enter that “missing assignment” zero when they enter gradebook scores, but then a week (or maybe two?) later they go back and fill in the zeroes. When those zero scores finally make an appearance, it can feel like students come out of the woodwork to address their missing work. Sometimes, that lag may result in lost points or the privilege of submitting the missing assignment(s).
Taking the time to add those zero scores goes a step beyond the automatic labels for any missing assignment in the student’s Grades page. To make it easier on yourself, you can ask Canvas to enter that zero in the Gradebook if a student does not submit an Online Submission assignment by the due date. This Canvas guide walks you through creating a missing assignment policy for your course, including entering a zero score (or any score of your choice) for missing assignments.
Hopefully this little tip helps you leverage Canvas and the Canvas Gradebook to save a little extra time in your day!
Adjust the students’ To-Do list on the Dashboard and Course Home Page, and
Adjust the Syllabus.
However, that only works if you are worried about a single due Due Date. You cannot drag and drop the “Available From” and “Available Until” dates.
What if you want to adjust ALL the assignment dates (or the due dates for several assignments) at the same time! You can quickly adjust multiple dates using the Edit Assignment Dates option from your Assignment Index Page. Just like dragging and dropping, Canvas will then:
Canvas has a great (new) feature that can make is mucheasier to share your content with your colleagues. It's called DIRECT SHARE.
You can directly share assignments, discussions, quizzes, and content pages with acolleagueAND you can also send thosesame items to a different course that you teach... DIRECTLY (not using the course Import tool). Take a minute to look at the links attached to see how to share assignments. Follow the same process to share discussions, quizzes, and content pages!
It's much easier than theCanvas Commons (even though that is still pretty helpful to share Modules and Courses with each other), especially if you want to send something quickly to your Professional Learning Collaborations or just copy a great resource from one course to another!
Hopefully that tip can help you feel more confident and powerful on Canvas!
However, it's already 2020, and there's got to be a way to create an assignment outside of those boundaries. Although the Add Assignment button still exists, the assignment won't save correctly due to a closed grading period. So what now?
This is only a concept. We wished that we can choose the grading period that we want, especially for overlapping periods.
Go to the Commons (Best Method)
Canvas Commons offers a wide variety of assignments to choose from. Select the assignment you want to import. Then, do the following:
If the imported content is marked as published by the original owner, unpublish it to put it out of view.
Duplicate the assignment.
Erase all the content from the newly duplicated assignment and change the title to "Unnamed Assignment."
Click Save, and the assignment should save properly.
Duplicate that Unnamed Assignment and edit it as usual.
In the Assign header, click Add.
Since there is a closed grading period by default, you must add a due date. Leaving it blank will still make the assignment fall in a closed grading period, and therefore the assignment will not save properly.
The due date cannot be earlier than the dates of the previous grading periods.
Click Save to save the newly created assignment.
ANY ADDITIONAL ASSIGNMENTS? Repeat steps 5-7 for any additional assignments you want to create.
Creating Classic Quizzes Outside of Grading Periods
You can still create Classic Quizzes as usual. However, if you want to add a due date, you must repeat steps 6-7 above.
I hope this helps, and remember, anything is possible!
How to Avoid It Next Time...
Check with your local institution if you want the grading periods to be updated on a regular basis (usually every semester). That way, you don't need to click Add in the Assign To field every time you create an assignment.
