Setting up and using the Turnitin App for iPad

Set up: To set up the Turnitin App you will need an iPad, a computer, and a Turnitin assignment in your class that has an assignment submitted.

You will need to complete these steps one time per class. If you include both Turnitin & Turnitin/Mahara assignments, you will need to complete these steps one time per assignment type for each class.

  1. On your iPad, go to the Apple Store and download the Turnitin App.
  2. When the app has finished installing, tap on it to open
  3. A pop-up box with instructions will appear. Read them, or hit “skip” in the top right corner to move on.
  4. From the home screen, hit Access Code (it will turn blue once selected):
  5. On a computer, go to your course in Moodle.
  6. Click the name of a Turnitin Assignment that has student work submitted
  7. From the Submission Inbox, click the tiny pencil to the right of the grade to access Grademark.
  8. In the bottom left corner of Grademark click the Tablet icon, then Generate code:
  9. Go back to your iPad, and type the code in and hit Add (it is not case sensitive, and you do not need the spaces).

Note: these are one time use, unique codes. If you need to share one with another user, you will need to generate a 2nd, different code.

   10. To add more courses, tap the Profile icon in the top right corner:

   11. Repeat the process until all your courses have been added to the App!

NOTE: You only need to do this once per class, unless your class contains both Turnitin and Turnitin/Mahara assignments. In that case, you need to provide an access code for each assignment type. Accessing assignments:

  1. Under Accounts, select Goshen College
  2. A list of courses you’ve added to the app will appear:
  3. Tap a class to access the assignments for that course.
  4. All your Turnitin assignments for that course should appear. Select the one you want to grade.
  5. Tap on an assignment to grade.
  6. Select “Sync Papers” – this downloads all the papers to you iPad, giving you access even when offline (so be sure to download the papers BEFORE you hop on a plane!)
  7. After the papers have synced, tap the assignment again. The paper selected will open.

Commenting & Grading:

  1. To add comments directly to the paper, tap on the screen.
  2. These options will appear (image right).
    1. QM stands for QuickMark. These are commonly used phrases when grading.
    2. The speech bubble allows you to add a lot of text using only a small amount of space, but students cannot view these comments on the iPad.
    3. The T is for “Text.” These comments can be viewed by students on iPad, but take up more space than the bubble comments.
  3. Type your comment then tap elsewhere on the paper to save.
  4. To delete or edit, tap the comment and select the trashcan icon.
  5. To add general comments on the whole paper, click the edit pencil in the top right hand corner. (Note: Once you have graded the paper, the icon changes from a pencil to the grade).
  1. To record a grade, click Edit Grade, and type the grade in the pop up box.
  2. To save, click elsewhere on the screen.

    9. The grade & comments sync automatically to Moodle!

   10. To get to the next paper, click back (top left), then Assignment (top left), and select the next paper from the list.

Note: For students who did not submit an assignment, you will need to go into your Moodle grade book and manually enter a zero.
