EIU Turnitin

Differences between the old and the new versions

As of January 1st, 2020, EIU has released a new version of Turnitin in D2L. The new version has embedded several new functions and makes the new Turnitin more flexible to meet various needs of instructors. A brief comparison between the two versions is provided below.

 1. Instructors can now enable GradeMark without Originality Check in Brightspace (for those that want to only use the annotations/commenting and grading in GradeMark and do not want to see Similarity Scores/Similarity Report)

2. All dates are now managed in Brightspace - removing the need for instructors to manage dates in Brightspace AND Turnitin

3. Automatically transfer Grades and Feedback to Brightspace as draft (optional enablement)

4. UI changes that give instructors a clear understanding of where they are in the grading process within the Brightspace Assignment Summary page, with visual icons indicating if a grade has been provided (or not) or if feedback has been provided (or not).

5. Students will have a visual indication if feedback has been left in GradeMark (not just an indication if a grade has been provided) – this is an exciting update for instructors who use assignments for Formative Assessments (where grades are not required).

6. Group Projects work. Turnitin can now be enabled for a group assignment and all students will now see the instructor feedback.
