How do I grade Turnitin assignments in SpeedGrader?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
Canvas copies submissions uploaded to Turnitin and displays the files in SpeedGrader. Turnitin provides an originality report and similarity index letting you know how much of the assignment is original. This report is displayed in SpeedGrader.
This lesson shows how to create an assignment for the Turnitin LTI. If your assignments view varies from the steps show in this lesson, your institution is using the Turnitin Plugin. However, you can still grade Turnitin assignments in SpeedGrader.
