Turnitin FAQ

What is the difference between “Manually sync grades as Draft in Brightspace” and “Automatically sync grades as Draft" in Turnitin settings?

There doesn't seem to be any reason to use the manual option, because it adds more work with no apparent benefit. Rather than being able to publish all Turnitin grades/feedback at once, you'd have to manually set grades one by one using the "use grade" for each submission.

Is it possible to automatically transfer grades/feedback from Turnitin to Brightspace, without the instructor publishing results?

No, Turnitin always requires the instructor to publish results in order for students to see grades/feedback.

Can instructors show students Turnitin feedback before assigning them a grade?

It is possible but with drawbacks. In order for students to see any results of a Turnitin submission an instructor must publish that submission's results. An instructor could choose to publish the results when only feedback has been entered, but no grades. However, once results have been published, further publishing for a student's submission will not update the Brightspace grades area. The result is that if an instructor publishes feedback, but no grades, they would be unable to publish grades in the future, and would need to either go student by student selecting "Use this grade", or they would need to manually enter grades in the Brightspace grades area.

Can instructors submit work on behalf of a student?

Not through Brightspace, but instructor can submit work on behalf of a student through Turnitin.com


Can instructors review Turnitin papers/grades from Blackboard courses?

Yes, through Turnitin.com
