8. Select the desired type of Launch container from the drop-down menu.

The following Launch container options are currently available:

Default - The Turnitin tool will display within your current web browser window, but without the surrounding TITANium course blocks.

Embed - The Turnitin tool will display within the frame of your TITANium course, meaning that the blocks will still display to the sides and and the course header will display above the turnitin tool.

Embed, without blocks - The Turnitin tool will display within your current web browser window with the course header, but without the surrounding blocks.

Existing window - The Turnitin tool will display within your current web browser window, but without the surrounding blocks and without the course header.

New window - The Turnitin tool will display within a new web browser window (or tab), but without the surrounding blocks and without the course header.

Note: Choosing Existing window will give you the most space on your web browser to work with the Turnitin tool. Choosing New window may cause the user's pop-up blocker to block the opening of the new window. Read this article to learn how to adjust your pop-up settings.

In this guide, New window has been selected.

Select the desired type of Launch container from the drop-down menu.

9. Type a point value in the Maximum points field.

100 points is the default. Choose an integer between 0 and 200. Note that the Maximum points field here must match the Max Grade field in Step 12 below. If you would like no grade for this assignment, select Grade type: None.

When the Turnitin web page opens, click on the Settings tab.

12. Adjust the Maximum Grade , the Start date, the Due date, and Feedback release date.

Be sure to set the Max Grade field to be the same integer as you did in Step 9 above. The Start date must be before the Due date. Likewise, the Due date must be on or before the Feedback release date. The Feedback release date determines when students will see their grades and comments from within the Turnitin assignment link.

However, due to the nature of the External tool, the grade that you enter in a Turnitin assignment will be posted to the students Grades as soon as you grade it.

Adjust the Maximum Grade , the Start date, the Due date, and Feedback release date.

13. Do not allow submission of any file type.

Click your choice in Do not allow submission of any type in order to receive Similarity Reports

If you want to receive a Originality Report, which is probably the main reason for even using Turnitin, then you need to select No for Allow submission of any type. This will then only allow files which Turnitin can analyze.

The default Optional settings are fine for most Turnitin assignments. However, you may want to add a rubric or allow late submissions or allow students to view the Originality Report. In those cases, you can then click on Optional settings. Read this article to learn about the Optional settings.
