How do I re-establish a Turnitin assignment link?
You will learn how to re-establish a Turnitin assignment link within your course in TITANium. Every time a course is copied, all of the Turnitin assignment links must be re-established or reconfigured for the new course.
1. Enter your course in TITANium.
2. Turn editing on.
Click the Turn editing on link within the Administration block or click on the Turn editing on button. The Administration block by default is the first block in the left-hand column of the course main page.
8. Under Grade, type the appropriate number of points.
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 17 below. If you would like no grade for this assignment, select Grade type: None.
10. If the new window is blocked, click on the Pop-up blocker text or icon.
14. The Turnitin assignment window now opens and displays.
17. Adjust the Max 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 8 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. The Comments on the other hand, will display on the Feedback release date.
18. Select to not allow any file type.
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.
You have now learned how to re-establish a Turnitin assignment link within your course in TITANium. Remember, this will need to be done every time you copy a Turnitin assignment from one course to another or even within the same course.
