This guide gives you information on setting up a Turnitin Assignment for the submission of non-text based assignments. i.e. image, audio, excel files.

Note: Turnitin only allows the submission of one file. Turnitin does not allow the submission of group assignments, consider using the Blackboard Assignment tool for group assignments (refer Assignment Tool page).

Note: Similarity reports are not produced for non-text based assignments.

Note: Only image files can be directly annotated with comments when marking, you can add comments to a blank page for other file types. Refer to the Mark Non-Text Assignments guide.
