Possibly new Turnitin LTI - SpeedGrader problem

Hi folks,

 

We have a faculty member using Turnitin to check originality for code files, and we encountered something unexpected in SpeedGrader that looks vaguely familiar, and I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this. (And if so, what were the circumstances?)

 

From about 120 or so submissions, the contents of four submissions were presented incorrectly in SpeedGrader, something like this:

 

{"version":1,"filename":"Assignment_1.ERW.txt","mimetype":"text/plain","filesize ":9867}

 

So, this is approximately a 3.3% failure rate for this assignment.

 

This looks to be JSON, rather than the assignment code or the output of the assignment. So we don't think that this is caused by using Turnitin to check code. The original files submitted in Turnitin were either TXT (three files) or RTF (one file).

 

Does this look like a familiar problem to anyone? (Dallas E Hulsey, any ideas?) If so, can you help refresh my memory about this?

 

Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer!
