Access Turnitin in Canvas
- Penn State Knowledge Portal KB0011056 (Penn State Only)
- Create Canvas/Turnitin Assignment
- Student Submission Instructions
Before using Turnitin within Canvas, instructors should note the following guidelines.
Official Courses Only
The Turnitin Integration is only available to courses listed in LionPath. The integration isn’t available in Sandboxes or Master Courses.
TAs MUST be added within Canvas. Any person with Teacher level access in a Canvas course will have instructor level access to Turnitin in that course.
Note: Instructors who attempt to convert a Turnitin class created in Canvas to a Turnitin Master course will break the connection between Turnitin and Canvas.
Students MUST submit their Turnitin assignments through Canvas if the integration is used. If a student submits an assignment outside of Canvas, the assignment may not be visible in Canvas for the instructor.
Grading (One Method Only)
Note: Instructors can ONLY use one method only per assignment. Otherwise the Gradebook may not record all assignment grades accurately.
Import Turnitin Grades into Canvas
For some situations, you may need to import grades from Turnitin to Canvas. See information on the Grade Export/Import page for details.
Instructors or students having problems with Turnitin within Canvas can contact LMSsupport@psu.edu.
