How do you turn on turnitin for assignments?
It depends on if your school has paid for turnitin, and whether they're using the API or LTI. If they haven't paid for turnitin, then you can't enable it. If it's the API, there should be a checkbox on the assignment creation page (just below the turn-in options). If it's the LTI, then set the turn-in option to external tool, and select turnitin from the external tool menu.
Hi Virginia Ludders...
The first question to ask is...do your Canvas admins at your school have the Turnitin LTI app enabled? If not, they will need to do this. For our Technical College, I worked with our library staff (because they are the ones that handle our Turnitin subscription) to get some of the details I needed to set up the Turnitin LTI app at the admin level within Canvas. You may need to do something similar.
If you know that your school already has the Turnitin integration set up in Canvas, then here are some Canvas Guides to get you started:
How do I create a Turnitin assignment?
How do I manage Turnitin assignments?
How do I change Turnitin settings for an assignment?
How do I grade Turnitin assignments in SpeedGrader?
Finally, Dallas E Hulsey has written an incredible blog entry called Canvas and Turnitin in the Instructional Designers group here in the Canvas Community. If you are not following that group, you can click on the link I've provided, and then click on the "Follow" link at the top right corner of the page.
I hope this information helps, Virginia!
I wanted to check in with you re: your Turnitin setup question since there hasn't been any activity since September 22nd. Did either of the responses from Anthony Bunag or me help to answer your question? I'm going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered", but that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions or comments about your Turnitin. Again, as I stated in my reply from September, I would recommend checking out the blog by Dallas. He's a great resource for Turnitin questions! Thanks Virginia.
