Additional Steps

Please refer to the FINAL Turnitin Assignment Set-Up (Standard Settings) guide on how to set up or edit existing Turnitin Assignments using the standardised University requirement before using this guide on making specific changes to enable anonymous marking.

IMPORTANT: Please ensure any changes to the Post Date are made before the Post Date passes or the marker will not be able to mark anonymously after that, even when retrospectively set the Post Date back, for example to provide more time for marking.

Select Optional Settings:

Amend the special instructions area as appropriate, for example adding Course Administrator contact details (not Tutor contact details), whether and when digital feedback will be provided via Turnitin, and a sentence to say that the assignment will be marked anonymously and students must not include their name anywhere on the work they have submitted, rather they should include their Student ID to the Turnitin submission title (where they type this into Turnitin when submitting – it is important to add this to aid administrative efficiency) and in the header of their document or equivalent:
