Yes, you can create a group assignment using the assignment activity. A group assignment means when one member of the group submits, the submission is applied to all group members. And when you grade, the grade and feedback is given to all group members. Turnitin Assignment does not yet have this capability.
When you set up the assignment, you will enable group submissions in the Group Submission Settings section. See the Group Submissions Settings section in our help guide on how to create an Assignment for more information. This must be done before any students submit. Once students begin submitting to the assignment, the group submission settings cannot be changed. You would need to delete the assignment and create the assignment again.
You will need to create the groups within your course before they begin submitting to the group assignment. Please see our help guide on how to Create Groups and Groupings.
Yes, you can change the max grade for an assignment that has already been graded.
Is the assignment hidden on your course homepage? If an assignment is hidden on the course homepage, it will also be hidden in the gradebook. From your course homepage, click on the three dots under the assignment and click Show. The grade should then be visible in the gradebook.
If it is visible on your course homepage, the grade might be stuck between hidden and visible. Go to the gradebook Setup page. For the assignment click Edit and then Hide. Click Edit again and then Show. Resetting the visibility it in this way should make the grades visible.
Students can’t view the feedback in Turnitin or see their grade in the gradebook until after the Post Date. To edit this date:
Turnitin Assignments allow you to create multiple parts within one assignment. Each part has a separate grade. This means you have to set the grade in at least two places in the settings - the overall grade and the grade(s) for the parts. If you only have one part, the settings can be easy to miss. Go into the settings and go to the Grade Section. Make sure the Maximum Grade is correct. Then, go to Assignment Part 1 and make sure the Max Grade is correct. Save.
Unfortunately if you have already graded the Turnitin Assignment the max grade for the gradebook cannot be changed. To change there are two options:
Unfortunately Turnitin doesn’t support group assignments. So when a student submits on behalf of their group, the submission is not applied to all group members. And when you grade, the grade and feedback is only available to that individual student, not all group members. For other students in the group (who didn't submit) to see the feedback, the student who uploaded it will need to download the paper and share it via email. To grade the other students in the group you will need to manually override their grade in the gradebook.
This error can be caused when Turnitin is experiencing problems, but it can also be caused if a student uploads an unsupported file type. If resubmissions are allowed and the due date has not passed, have the student submit again after converting to an acceptable file format (doc, docx, pdf). If resubmissions are not allowed or the due date had passed, either download the submission or have the student send you the submission via email. Convert to an acceptable file type. In the Submission Inbox delete their current submission and upload the new file.
First, make sure the incorrect date in the calendar is pointing to that specific Turnitin Assignment and not a completely separate Turnitin Assignment. If it is not connected to a separate Turnitin Assignment, next go into the settings of the Turnitin Assignment to verify the dates there are correct there. Don't forget to check if there is a "expect completed on" date enabled in the section Activity Completion as that can sometimes create a calendar item.
If you have verified it isn't another Turnitin Assignment and that the dates in the settings are all correct, then it might be that the incorrect date in the calendar is a phantom date held over from when the Turnitin Assignment was imported into the course. We do not recommend importing Turnitin Assignments as they can remain connected to the original Turnitin Assignment. Sometimes this manifests as phantom dates on the calendar, and sometimes it results in Originality Reports not being processed. To avoid this, we recommend creating Turnitin Assignments from scratch each term. To remove the phantom calendar dates, you can delete the Turnitin Assignment and then Restore it from the Recycle Bin. To delete, from your course homepage click the three dots underneath the Turnitin Assignment and select Delete. Wait about an hour. Then, from your course homepage, click the gear icon in the upper right to open the Course Administration and select Recycle Bin (near the bottom). Find the Turnitin Assignment you deleted and click the Restore icon. The Turnitin Assignment will then be restored, along with the correct dates in the calendar.
Did you import this Turnitin Assignment from another course? If so, this message means it is still connected to that other Turnitin Assignment. Unfortunately this can prevent students from being able to submit or prevent Originality Reports from being generated. To resolve you would need to delete this Turnitin and create it from scratch.
To avoid this in the future, we recommend creating Turnitin Assignments from scratch each term.
