LTI 1.3 and Advantage FAQ

What benefits come with Turnitin becoming LTI Advantage certified?

In addition to the security improvements that come with LTI 1.3, additional services are now available which continue to improve the integration experience between Turnitin and an LMS.

  • Names and Role Provisioning Services - provides assignment roster syncing as well as the ability for instructors to submit on behalf of a student.

  • Deep Linking - an easier approach to setting up a Turnitin assignment from within a course.

  • Assignment and Grade Services - offers a better-supported method of sharing student grades between Turnitin and an LMS.

Can my institution benefit from this now?

Although Turnitin is now LTI Advantage certified, not all Turnitin LMS partners have completed the same necessary updates. This means that the current LTI integrations will remain the same while we work with individual partners to complete a fully working integrated experience, and we will be announcing these individually as they go live.

Are there any currently live LTI Advantage certified integrations?

What if my institution uses a custom LMS that is LTI 1.3 certified?

  1. The person responsible for developing your integration will first have to fill out our New Integrations Questionnaire. This questionnaire will provide us with all the information we need to help support you while developing your integration. While following the LTI 1.3 standard should make things seamless, we can work together to build an integration that provides the best it can offer.
  2. After our successful collaboration, your users can use our generic guidance to get started no matter what platform they are using. As most of our guidance is published under a Creative Commons license, you can use our guides as a base for your own to capture your user's whole workflow.
