Moodle Help & Support (Staff)

This refers to Moodle 4.1 from December 2023 onwards

Note: Marking in Moodle assignment should be carried out with the Moodle marking tools.
It is not intended that Turnitin Feedback Studio be used to mark a Moodle assignment. Turnitin in a Moodle assignment is solely intended for the production of similarity reports. 

Note: It is expected that the user has some previous knowledge of Turnitin and has already got a Moodle Assignment with Turnitin enabled.

If Turnitin was enabled when setting up the Moodle assignment, you will be able to view the originality report of the assignment when you come to mark the script. 

Accessing Turnitin through Moodle Assignments

  1. Click on the Moodle assignment dropbox you wish to access. e.g.
