Submit papers directly to Turnitin

On this page:


At Indiana University, the simplest way for instructors to use Turnitin in a course, is to use the Assignments tool in Canvas and enable Turnitin for a specific assignment. When possible, instructors should use Turnitin through the Canvas integration; see About Turnitin in Canvas.

In special cases, such as when students want to check their own papers, or when an instructor who didn't use the Canvas integration wants to run a paper through Turnitin after the fact, instructors can contact the teaching and learning center for assistance.

Get started

As an instructor, if you wish to have papers submitted to directly instead of using Canvas assignments, you'll need to request a Turnitin account; contact your campus teaching and learning center for assistance.

If you have used Turnitin via Canvas in the past, an account may have already been generated for you. To access it, you'll need to reset your password.

You can submit papers to directly via Quick Submit or a manually created assignment. Quick Submit is best for situations where a single paper needs to be checked. When papers need to be submitted in bulk, or if students will need to submit on their own, it's best to create an assignment manually. (GradeMark and PeerMark will only be available for student-submitted papers.) For instructions for both submission methods, see the Turnitin documentation in the following section.
