Just as with any other Moodle assignment, you can specify start and due dates for Turnitin assignments. Those dates, however, are not set when you first create the Turnitin assignment; they are set on a separate page. There are also Turnitin-specific behaviors you should be aware of.

  1. From your course page, select the Turnitin assignment and to go to its summary page (if you are not there already).
  2. In the table that appears on this screen, select the Pencil icon on the far right.
  3. You’ll be taken to a page where you can specify the Start Date, Due Date and Post Date. Be advised that like other Moodle activities, Turnitin’s dates function on a 24-hour clock.

The Start Date specifies when the assignment will start taking student submissions. You must set the Start Date to at least 24 hours before you intend to start receiving submissions.

The Due Date specifies when the assignment will stop taking student submissions (unless you allowed for late submissions, in which case this will determine when student submissions are marked late).

The Post Date specifies when grades on the assignment will be made visible to students.

4. When your dates are set, select Submit to save your changes.
