Q. How do I generate additional Turnitin originality reports before the due date?

This FAQ will tell you how to generate and view your similarity reports and understand what each icon within the report means.


You may want to check your assignments before the due date and make changes if the similarity indicates a high percentage. To do this click on the 'View/Complete' link again after submitting your assessment and it will take you to the TURNITIN Assignment Inbox.

Your first time submitting you will see a blue Submit button:


Subsequent goes you will see the Resubmit button:

If you try to submit additional reports you will receive the following notice:

On the Assignment Inbox page, you will then be able to click on the 'View' button to access your TURNITIN Originality Report and check for assessment authenticity.


You can continue to submit your assessment via the 'View/Complete' link and check for authenticity as many times as you wish until the due date of the assessment. 

After the due date, you will no longer be able to submit to the 'View/Complete' link.  The version of the assessment submitted most recently will be the version your lecturer will mark.


*Please keep in mind TURNITIN Originality Reports may take up to 24 hours to generate.*
