A student uploaded a paper to the wrong assignment. How do I get a Turnitin report for this paper?
You could download the student's file and submit it to Turnitin's website with the Quick submit feature. Here is a tutorial: Quick Submit - YouTube. In the tutorial, I am using a zip file with multiple papers, but the process is the same for an individual file. Once you get the report, you could save it as a .pdf and attach it as a submission comment in the Canvas Spedgrader for record keeping. Would that work for you, Jonathan?
Oh, and, assuming you are using the newer LTI integration, if you have never logged into the Turnitin website directly, you can go through the forgotten password process -- just use the same email that you use in your Canvas profile.
If you are still using the older API integration, you can download the file, switch over to the test student view and resubmit the file as the test student.
Jonathan, could you clarify whether your school is still using the Turnitin Legacy API or the Turnitin LTI? Also, I've shared your question with Dallas E Hulsey, our renowned Turnitin expert.
Thank you. The suggestion and YouTube video from Dallas Hulsey were
perfect. I just uploaded the file and Turnitin did its' job.
I'd be happy to let you know about what version of Turnitin Rider
University is using. Can you tell me how to tell if it is Turnitin Legacy
API or the Turnitin LTI?

Jonathan, by looking at the settings for the assignment, you can tell quickly if your school is using the LTI or API (also variously referred to as the "plugin"). If you're using the Turnitin LTI, the assignment will be of the External Tool type (see How do I create a Turnitin assignment?). If you're using the Legacy API (which is being deprecated I believe at the end of this year) the assignment will be of the more typical usual Online--File Upload type, and you will see a Turnitin checkbox in the Edit Assignment Details interface that allows you to enable Turnitin submissions for that assignment.
With the Turnitin LTI, you also have a number of settings for the assignment that are configurable in Turnitin. For more information about those, please refer to How do I change Turnitin settings for an assignment? . (These aren't available for the Legacy API.)
And last, if you're going to be using Turnitin often, I hope you will have a look at Dallas E Hulsey's Canvas and Turnitin blog, which is the ne plus ultra of Turnitin resources for Canvas.
Thank you. Your suggestion worked! The video was perfect.
