Teachers

Please note that Teachers will only be able to view similarity scores and originality reports on Assignment activities that were Turnitin enabled at the point of creation. For further details on this, please see: Getting started with Turnitin.

Following student submission of assignment files to Moodle, there is no defined time within which the Turnitin service will return similarity scores and originality report. However, you should allow up to 48 hours before contacting the e-Learning team to report any issues.

For Teachers to view similarity scores and originality reports related to assignment submissions:

  • Go to the Assignment activity that students have submitted assignments to.
  • Click on the View/grade all submissions link towards the top right hand corner of the activity.
  • A list of all assignments submitted will be displayed in tabular format, an example of which is shown below.

  • Similarity score will be displayed next to the file submitted. This is also the case where multiple files are submitted by a student within a single activity.
  • The date and time displayed underneath the file above remains the timestamp of when the student submitted their assignment file to Moodle - rather than when feedback from Turnitin was received.
  • To view the Originality Report, click on the Similarity link next to the link to the file upload (see above). This will launch a new web browser window, taking you to the Turnitin website and the relevant report.
