Adding a TurnItIn Assignment

Create a TurnItIn assignment which links an activity in PolyLearn to TurnItIn.com. Once linked, the activity allows instructors to assess and provide feedback to student's written work using the assessment tools available within TurnItIn Document Viewer.

NOTE: Instructors reviewing rough drafts may want to see an Originality Report, but will not want to trigger a false positive for final drafts. In this scenario, it is recommended to use the Originality Report, but not store the paper in a repository. The default setting is No Repository to allow students to submit drafts. This tool is to help students improve their writing skills and drafts help them improve.
