Export Submissions and Grades from a Turnitin Assignment

Once students have submitted work to a Turnitin assignment, instructors can use the Submisison inbox to download individual submissions, export all student submissions in their original format or as .pdfs, and export an excel sheet list of grades. Exporitng submissions can be useful for instructors working with non-supported files in Turnitin or viewing submissions offline, or using an external software to mark-up or to offer feedback.

  2. In the Submission inbox, locate the row for the student submission you want to download. Click the Download icon (Image of a cloud with an arrow pointing down) on that row. The download will begin. 

Downloading Multiple Student Submissions

You may choose to download selected submissions from the Turnitin Submission inbox. This option allows you to specify which files you would like to download, without downloading all submissions.
