Turnitin Plagiarism Review Tool

This option is available when the assignment submission type in Canvas is set to "Online" and "File Uploads." This tool will ONLY generate Turnitin Originality Reports and spelling/grammar suggestions (if ETS e-rater is enabled); and ONLY the Canvas SpeedGrader is used to enter student grades and inline comments. 
Note: This option does support group assignment submissions. Turnitin's Feedback Studio is used ONLY to view Originality Reports.
