Moving Papers Between Assignments


If an assignment has been accidentally submitted to the wrong assignment within a class you can easily change this. 


Note: Any grades you have already applied to the submission will also be transferred with the paper


1. From the class homepage navigate to the assignment with the incorrect submission


2. Using the check boxes in the first column select the student submissions that you would like to move. A yellow bar will appear confirming the amount of papers you have selected. Click the Move To... button. 



3. Using the destination assignment drop down select the assignment you'd like to move the submission into


Note: You are only able to move papers between assignments within the same class


4. Click Submit to move the papers

When a paper is submitted to Turnitin, the papers are generally saved to the Turnitin student repository database.  This is to ensure that if the same paper (or parts of the paper) is submitted again, Turnitin will be able to find the match and flag it as possible plagiarism. 

NOTE:  The instructions below are for New assignments, but if you would like to change the settings for an existing assignment, click on the class name, then the "More Actions" link for the assignment and choose the "Edit Settings" link.  Finish by following steps 5-8.  The new settingswill only affect future submissions, and not already-submitted papers.

When creating new assignments, Instructors can choose to *not* have submitted papers saved to any database by doing the following:

  1. Sign in to your account as an instructor
  2. Click on the class name
  3.  Click on the “+Add Assignment” link and choose "Paper Assignment."
  4. Create a name for the assignment and set the dates. 
  5. Click on the “+Optional Settings” link towards the bottom of the screen.
  6. Scroll down again until you reach the "Submit papers to" pull-down menu.
  7. Select "no repository" from the pull-down menu.
  8. Click on the "submit" icon to save this assignment.

This means that if, for example, two students in a class submit the same paper, Turnitin will NOT find a match between them.  This can be helpful for group project papers, where several people in a group would submit the same paper for the assignment.

The 'No Repository' option is only good for newly created assignments.  In other words, it won't go into effect on assignments with submissions already in them when the setting was set to save the submissions in the repository.
