|−|# in the page Admin > Modules > Activities > Turnitin set the following: | |
|−|## Tick the box "Use Turnitin Submission" | |
|−|## Enter your Turnitin Account ID | |
|−|## Enter your Turnitin Secret Key as obtained from your Turnitin Account Rep | |
|−|## Elect whether to send students an e-mail to allow them to login to the turnitin. com site to view their submissions ( this isn't necessary, and will likely cause your students more confusion, as all the information available in the website is available from your moodle site.) - even if no e-mail is sent, students can visit turnitin.com and use the forgotten password functionality on the turnitin site to get their password sent via e-mail. Admins can disable this by adding a prefix to all email accounts created - see below for details. | |
|−|## Add an e-mail prefix if you don't want students to be able to access the reports on turnitin.com - it is advised that you allow the integration in moodle to control what your students see, however , if you allow them to login to turnitin.com they can bypass the settings made regarding when a report should be available. - it 's also possible that they could potentially upload a file to turnitin.com instead of moodle, which you may not notice. It's reccommended that you put something in this box to make the e-mail addresses for students stored on the turnitin. com system invalid. | |
|−|## Set a Course Prefix - this is not compulsory, however if you have more than 1 Moodle site connecting to the Turnitin API - eg a testing site, and a production site, then a prefix MUST be set, because Turnitin will only allow 1 course with the same name - and only 1 assignment within that course with the same name. - you will potentially get conflicts if this is not set. | |
|−|## Set the Student Disclosure statement. - this is displayed to all students on the upload screen to notify them that the Turnitin system is in use. | |

each file that is going to be submitted to turnitin is added to the table mdl_tii_files - the field tiicode gives the "status" of the file, - there are 3 "good" states for this field: |+|

|−|# "pending" - this is a new file that has been uploaded to an activity module, and needs to be submitted to Turnitin (will happen next time cron runs) |+|
|−|# "51" - this is the turnitin API code for Successful upload - this means the file has been uploaded to Turnitin and we are waiting on an originality score, |+|
|−|# "success" - this is a file that has been submitted, and a score has been provided for it. |+|
|−|Any other response code in this field indicates an error state. - There is a Turnitin API document in the forums somewhere that I uploaded that details these error codes, and their meaning, I will add them to this wiki page at some point to help with debugging. |+|
Turnitin is a commercial plagiarism detection system which requires a paid subscription to use - there are currently 3 different options available to use Turnitin in Moodle 2.0.
The Direct Plugin works on the principle of mapping a Turnitin Assignment in Moodle with an assignment in Turnitin, once mapped all submissions made on either side are synchronised reflecting any changes on both platforms. It is therefore possible to access the assignments created using the plugin by logging in to either system. There is the option to disable emails sent out to students which means login details and welcome emails are not sent which encourages students to submit only through Moodle. GradeMark grades are represented in the Moodle gradebook and originality scores are displayed in the Moodle Turnitin Assignment Inbox.
This is an assignment type plugin (support for this may be dropped in 2.3 as the assignment module is planned for a rewrite) it just provides Single Sign on to the turnitin.com website keeping moodle in a frame at the top.
