This document describes how to create a Turnitin assignment.

Create a Turnitin Assignment in Blackboard

  1. Navigate to the content area in your Blackboard course where you want the assignment to be located (ex: Coursework > Module 1).

  2. Click Assessments and select Turnitin Assignment from the drop-down menu (if you do not see these options, make sure Edit Mode is turned on).

  3. Once the Turnitin page opens, select the "Assignment Type": "Paper Assignment", "Peer Mark Assignment", or "Revision Assignment". A Paper Assignment is for the original paper submission. A Revision Assignment and Peer Mark Assignment are for posting second drafts and peer editing, respectively; both require an existing initial Paper Assignment.

  4. Click the Next Step button.


  5. For a Paper Assignment, specify general information including assignment title, points possible, start date, due date, and post date (when students will see your comments/feedback if you are using GradeMark).

  6. Scroll down and click Optional settings if you would like to allow late submissions or re-submissions, exclude bibliographic information from Originality Reports, or adjust other assignment settings. Turnitin describes its optional settings further on this web page.

  7. Click the Submit button to finalize the Turnitin assignment.
