Student View in TurnItIn Drop Boxes

After a student has submitted something to a TurnItIn Drop box, what happens?
  1. When it is successful, a student may receive a "receipt" from TurnItIn in their email that looks like a bunch of run-on sentences.  This is the content the student submitted but without any formatting applied.  No worries - it's just a receipt to let you know your submission was successful.
  2. A report is generated from within the drop box where a student can see the results of their submission.  But how do you access it?

  • Go back to the Lessons tab in your course and find the TurnItIn drop box
  • Click the drop box icon

  • Once the drop box opens, look for "Show details" and click it
  • This will open up a little larger window of information below

  • From the additional information, now look for "Report" and a color
  • Click on the color to open your actual TurnItIn report

  • Then you get ANOTHER new window with stuff specifically about your paper or whatever you turned in to TurnItIn
  • The highlighted areas are numbered and associated with matches on the right side of the screen.
  • To see your results you may either click the number from within the document or you may click the number from the right side of the screen.  Either will show you your results.
  • To exit, click the red X in the upper right corner and you are back in the ANGEL classroom looking at the drop box again
