Change to Turnitin for anonymous marking

Please read this information if you use or administer Turnitin for anonymous marking.

With the recent Blackboard upgrade, essential to ensure our Blackboard service remains supported, we were also required to update the Turnitin integration. Unfortunately, in the newer version Turnitin have changed the Sync Grades functionality so it cannot be used to send submission information (marks or submission status) from Turnitin to the Blackboard Grade Centre while anonymity is on.

Does this affect me?

The change affects you if you have previously used Sync Grades to:

  • Check to see which students have or have not submitted while an assignment is anonymous
  • Run anonymous moderation

If you are affected please read the information about alternatives to sync grades before setting up any new Turnitin assignments. If in doubt contact the Digital Education Office for further advice.
