Submitting to an assignment

Turnitin uses the same Canvas upload process your students will already familiar with. If your student's haven't submitted using Canvas before, have them follow the steps below.

In Canvas, only the student role can submit to an assignment.

  1. Navigate to your course.
  2. From the Assignments tab, open your assignment.
  3. Use the Submit Assignment button to get started.

  4. Use the Choose file button to find the file you'd like to upload.

  5. When you're done select the Submit assignment button to upload to Turnitin.

    A similarity report will generate for every file uploaded.
