Instructions from PowerSchool Learning’s Knowledge Base.
As a teacher, you can add a Turnitin assignment as an Activity to any class through the LTI & SCORM area of the Activities tab. For more details on the general process of adding LTI & SCORM Activities, check out PowerSchool article: How do I add an LTI Activity to my class?
Choose the Add Activity button, then select Turnitin from your available tool options.
Enter the Title and a brief Description of the Activity you are creating. The Title will automatically appear to students as the Title of the Turnitin assignment within the Activity. Then, just hit Save & Configure to get started.
You will automatically be authenticated into your Turnitin account and brought to the Assignment Inbox area for a brand new assignment. Select Settings to choose your Max Grade, Start Date, Due Date and Feedback release date.
Please note: settings that are adjustable here are native to Turnitin. Start and Due dates will control students' ability to submit items to the Activity but do not affect the visibility of the Activity within your class.
Turnitin allows for lots of additional settings. Would you like to: Allow late submissions, Exclude bibliographic materials, allow students to view their own Originality Reports? How about attaching a Rubric? Select any of these through the Optional Settings area, then hit Submit to finalize your settings.
Hit Publish to choose additional settings, or just Close to go back to this item later. If you Publish, you will have the option to select when students can access the activity, whether a Gradebook Entry is created, the Location on Page, and whether to display the Activity as a link that will open in a new window or an embedded object.
