Many things can be reused and recycled, but not Turnitin assignments

At the start of every new teaching period, it’s important to delete any Turnitin assignments that may have been carried over from the previous instance of a subject.

The reason for this is that Turnitin assignments that has been copied over will not function correctly as the new semester progresses, causing problems such as corrupt submissions, missing student names, and a disruption of the flow of grades to Grade Centre – all things we would rather avoid!

To delete any Turnitin assignments copied from an earlier subject, click the drop-down arrow next to the title of the assignment and choose Delete

After deleting all Turnitin assignments, simply create fresh versions of the assignments on any content page.
