Setting Up Turnitin Assignments in Canvas

  • You can choose two ways to set up your Turnitin assignments, depending on how you wish to use Turnitin. Access via Turnitin.com directly is NOT advised with either method. Both options are detailed below.

      1. Option 1 | Grade with Speedgrader, with the option to use Canvas rubrics. Access to Turnitin Quickmarks and Turnitin rubrics will NOT be available with this option.

      2. Option 2 | Use Turnitin.com directly in Canvas via a deep link. Access to Turnitin Quickmarks and Turnitin rubrics WILL be available with this option.

Option 1

Use Canvas Speedgrader

  • Access to Turnitin Quickmarks and Turnitin rubrics will NOT be available with this option

Please note:

  • If you used the Canvas/Turnitin Integration prior to 2022, you may be used to a different setup

  • Please choose "Online Submission" assignment, not "External Tool"

  • Assignments automatically run through the turnitin.com plagiarism filters

Option 2

Turnitin.com Canvas Deep Link

  • Access to Turnitin Quickmarks and Turnitin rubrics WILL be available with this option.

Please note:

  • This is a completely new setup for Turnitin in Canvas

  • You will set up your assignment using the Turnitin option NEXT TO the big "+ assignment" button, rather than by creating an assignment the traditional way
