Turnitin – assignment submission guidance

We have had a number of enquiries from students who claim to have submitted their assignment to Turnitin via the VLE, when checking for the submission they found that there was no record of it.

There are two steps to submitting an assignment:

  1. Browse for a file and upload
  2. Then check the text only Preview Paper and click Submit.

If the submission was successful they will see an on screen confirmation and be given a unique ‘paper id’ (see image below), a copy of this will also be sent to their University of Leeds email account. If a student doesn’t see the on screen confirmation they should try again.

We have recently updated the on screen guidance with basic instructions on how to submit. Detailed instructions, including a video demonstration, can be found on the VLE support website: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/vle/students/guides/turnitin.htm

Comments are welcome, however if you need help or advice please contact the ISS helpdesk on tel (0113) 343 3333, or helpdesk@leeds.ac.uk.
