To Manage a Turnitin Assignment:

1. Log into Moodle, and select your course.

2. Click the Turnitin assignment you wish to manage.

3. There are 3 tabs: Submission Inbox, Turnitin Tutors, and Turnitin Students. The Submission Inbox contains a Help Link (Optional), the Assignment Details, PeerMark Assignment Settings, and the Student Submission List.

4. Click Need Help with Turnitin? to access a help screen. Select a topic from the I need help with... dropdown. Topics include Classes, Assignments, Submissions, Late Submissions, Managing Students, Similarity and Feedback. After you select a topic, further refine your search by selecting a subtopic from the Just a little more information dropdown. Selections in this list are determined by your main topic selection.
After you select your subtopic, help information will appear. If the information is not helpful and you cannot find what you need by reading through other topics, click No, I Need More Help. This will open the Turnitin Support page where you can submit a Support Ticket.

5. If the assignment has multiple parts, tabs across the top enable navigation between the parts. Click the appropriate Assignment Part to view the details of that part of the assignment.
