Turnitin – ANGEL Integration

The Weinberg Memorial Library and the CTLE are pleased to announce a new service integration between Turnitin.com and ANGEL.

If you have never used Turnitin.com, its Originality Checking component allows faculty to check students' work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against three continually updated content bases: web pages, proprietary content from subscription-based publications, and previously submitted student papers.

If you are already familiar with Turnitin.com, the ANGEL integration makes the process seamless. You can now add a specifically designed Drop Box which will eliminate the need to navigate to the Turnitin.com Web site to create your assignment. Students can use this Drop Box to submit their papers. Both you and your students can view the originality report generated for each submitted paper.

How does this work?
From the Lessons tab of your ANGEL course, click Add Content, and select Turnitin Drop Box. You will see a window announcing a New Look for Turnitin.com. You may safely close it before proceeding. Then, you will be asked to accept the Turnitin.com terms of use. Click on the screen prompt to agree. You will only have to do this once.

Next, you will create your assignment. The following fields are required:

  • assignment title
  • start date (You may change it accordingly; if set in the future, students will not be able to submit until that date.)
  • due date (Due date must be later than the start date.)
  • post date (You may ignore this date.)
There are more options you can setup for your assignment. Click the more options link to select what options you want to include. A few suggestions:
  • Generate Originality Reports for student submissions
    • Select immediately (can overwrite reports until due date). This will allow students to submit a revised paper based on the originality report that was generated
  • Exclude bibliographic materials from Similarity Index for all papers in this assignment?
    • Choose Yes
  • Allow students to see Originality Reports?
    • Choose Yes
  • Allow submissions after the due date?
    • Choose Yes
Click Submit when done. This will create the assignment and return you to the Lessons tab in ANGEL. Once students have submitted their papers, an originality report will be generated for each paper. Click on the Drop Box created for the assignment to view the student submissions and originality reports.
