New Turnitin/SpeedGrader Issue with Resubmissions

We are receiving reports from instructors concerning resubmissions to Turnitin assignments. Students are resubmitting papers (in some cases two weeks after the first submission) but SpeedGrader is displaying a duplicate copy of the original paper instead of the resubmission. The Turnitin assignments page does show the correct paper the student resubmitted.

We have opened a ticket with Instructure (case# 01601166). The issue has been forwarded to Instructure engineers.

As a workaround instructors can open a resubmitted paper from the Turnitin assignment page.

Another workaround would be to disable resubmissions and instead create another Turnitin drop box.

We are hoping a fix will be installed soon so instructors do not have to compare each resubmission with the original paper in order to find out which improvements students have made.
