Using Turnitin in Canvas Assignments


Faculty who wish to use Turnitin on a Canvas assignment can follow these steps: 

Step 1: Open the assignment in Canvas and click Edit.

Step 2: Scroll down to the Submission Type section. Under Submission type, select Online submission. Be sure that either “Text Entry” or “File Uploads” is checked (or both).

Step 3: Scroll down to the Plagiarism Review section and select Turnitin Originality from the drop-down menu.


Step 4: Select whether to exclude bibliographies and quotes from the report, whether to index all submissions, and when to show the report to students. (When a submission is indexed by Turnitin, it is made available for comparison in future Similarity Reports.)


Step 5: Scroll to the bottom of the page and click SAVE
