How do I direct submit a paper to Turnitin?

The Turnitin Plagiarism Framework does not have a built in direct submit feature, but you can use the Student View tool to submit a paper to any Turnitin assignment.

Steps for Direct Submit

To begin you will need to already have an assignment with the Turnitin option selected or you will need to create a new Turnitin assignment.  If you do not have an existing Turnitin assignment and you do not want your students to see one, you will need to create a new Turnitin assignment in one of your SANDBOX courses.  With the assignment ready:

  1. Go into student view by following the instructions on Student View.
  2. You are now viewing the course as a student sees it; click on
  3. Submit the paper to the Turnitin assignment by following the instructions on How do I upload a file as an assignment submission in Canvas?
  4. The paper is now submitted, and a Similarity Report will be generated.
