Changing Turnitin paper repository options

The Turnitin administrator can select which paper repository options appear within their account. You are able to allow instructors to choose which paper repository assignment options they use on each assignment or have all student papers automatically be added to the standard repository. The Turnitin administrator has three options: enable instructor standard repository options, enable instructor expanded repository options, or submit all papers to the standard repository.

  1. Log into Turnitin as the administrator and click on the edit icon to the right of the account name.



  2. Select one of the three options from the paper repository options: enable instructor standard repository options, enable instructor expanded repository options, or submit all papers to the standard repository.

    If submit all papers to the standard repository is selected from the paper repository options pull-down menu, all student papers submitted to the account will be stored in the standard paper repository.

    If enable instructor standard repository options is chosen instructors will be able to set the assignment option to either store student papers within the standard paper repository or to not store the papers in any repository.

    If enable instructor expanded repository options is chosen, instructors will be able to set an assignment options to store student papers in the standard paper repository, in the institution paper repository, no repository, or to allow students to choose between the standard paper repository and the institution paper repository.

    Allowing students to choose between the standard paper repository and the institution paper repository option is not available with all integrations.

  3. Click on Submit in the bottom left corner of the account modification window to save any changes made.
