Please note: as a limitation on Turnitin's LTI integration, we are unable to create group assignments through the Aula integration. We instead recommend using Handin to create group assignments.. Please contact us if you need additional help with that

To create a new assessment:

1. Click on your User Profile  

2. Select the '+' in the top right corner

3. Select the space where the assessment will live
4. Select Turnitin from the "Tool" dropdown
5. Input the title, open/close and grade release dates and whether you want the assessment hidden from students or not

Change additional settings on Turnitin

There are a number of different settings you can select on Turnitin. For instance, you can choose to allow for late submissions, for students to resubmit until the assessment closes, and more. Here's an article from Turnitin which explains these settings.

To make sure you have the right settings on Turnitin, you need to 

  1. Click into the Turnitin assessment
  2. Select 'Settings'
  3. Click on 'Additional settings'
  4. Make any changes
  5. Click 'done'


Multipart Assignments

Turnitin's LTI integration is a bit limited on this front. Instead of uploading multiple documents to one assignment, students will instead need to merge all content into one document for multipart assignments.

This gets especially tricky with differing file formats - for example, a Word document and a PowerPoint file. If you're asking your students to upload various file formats, we would instead recommend creating multiple assignment links within Turnitin for a cleaner upload.

Share the assessments with students

Students will then be able to access the assessment through their profiles, so long as you've made the assessment visible.

Additionally, you can add the assessment link into your Materials/ Feed/ Messages. You can do this by clicking on the green plus sign and selecting the assessment. Note - students will only be able to access this if you've made the assessment visible.
