If sections of a class are taught by other instructors or by teaching assistants, a class with sections can be created in Turnitin. A top-level master class is created to oversee the section classes. From the master class, the instructor creating the master class can set up sections for the other instructors. These instructors are referred to in the master/section class system as Teaching Assistants (TAs).
The primary master class instructor is the only one who can set up sections for a TA. TAs are not able to add themselves. The primary master class instructor can set class preferences, create and ‘push’ assignments to the sections, reassign a section to a new TA, or access the section.
To create a new master class, use the + Add Class button on the instructor homepage of Turnitin.
- On the add a class page, use the class type: drop-down menu and select master class.
- Use the submit button and a new master class will be created. When first created, a master class will not have any sections. Learn how to create one and add a TA to manage it.
