    ¿Cómo presento una tarea de Turnitin?

    You can submit Turnitin assignments directly in Canvas. Turnitin measures assignment originality and indicates what percent of your assignment matches internet sources.

    Submitting a Turnitin assignment is similar to submitting a regular online assignment. However, the Turnitin LTI for Canvas only supports file uploads and text entry submissions; in file uploads, you can only upload one file per assignment.

    Additionally, you may not be able to resubmit your assignment or submit the assignment past the due date. Be sure to view the assignment summary before submitting your assignment. If you are allowed to resubmit an assignment, all marks and comments associated with the original submission will be deleted. Turnitin resubmissions may take up to 24 hours to process.

    You can submit your assignment as a text entry or upload any supported file type: Text (.txt), Microsoft Word (.doc/.docx), Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx), Postcript (.ps), Portable Document Format (.pdf), Rich Text Format (.rtf), HyperText Markup Language (.html), WordPerfect (.wp), Hangul (.hwp), or Open Office (.odt/.ods/.odp). You can also upload an assignment from Google Drive or Dropbox. Turnitin submissions require a minimum of 20 words, a maximum of 400 pages, and a file size maximum of 40 MB.

    After submitting your assignment, your instructor may allow you to view your Turnitin results. If your instructor has added a Canvas rubric to your Turnitin assignment, it can only be viewed on the Submission Details page for that assignment (at any time) or your Grades page (after the rubric has been scored). You can access the Submission Details page by clicking on the name of the assignment in your Grades page.

    Note: The Turnitin LTI is responsive to the size of your browser window. Your view of the Turnitin LTI may vary from the images shown in this lesson.

  • Turnitin provides an originality report and similarity index letting the instructor know how much of your assignment is original.

    Depending on the Turnitin settings, after you have submitted your assignment, you may be able to view Turnitin results immediately or after the due date.

    Your instructor also has the option to restrict the originality report from being shown in your assignment. If the originality report does not appear in the assignment submission details, your instructor has restricted this feature.

    Note: The originality report for an initial assignment submission may take a minimum of ten minutes to generate.

  • Your instructor may require you to submit a peer review of another student's assignment. To complete the assignment, you must review the student's assignment and add a comment in the comment sidebar.

    If your instructor includes a rubric, which is a pre-determined outline of how an assignment is graded, you must also assign a grade using the rubric.

    Some peer reviews may also be anonymous, which means you cannot view the name of the student whose assignment you are reviewing. Additionally, the student cannot see your name as the reviewer when you leave a comment to complete the review.  

  • You can create a graded discussion for a course group by using the Group Discussion checkbox. Canvas uses group sets to assign group discussions, and each group within the group set that is assigned to the discussion is required to complete the discussion.

    You will need to assign a group set as part of the discussion. You can add an existing group set, or you can create a new group set as part of the assignment and add students to groups later. However, if you create a group set with self sign-up or manual group assignments, you will not be able to use the group set until users have been added to the subgroups.

    When differentiating groups in graded discussions, students can only view the discussion if they are a member of an assigned group. Otherwise the discussion does not appear in the group's discussions page. Grades cannot be assigned for students who have not been included in the graded discussion, and graded discussions that are not assigned to a student are not factored into overall grades. 

    You can still view the links to all groups that are in the group set (as with any other group discussion). However, if you do not select a group in the differentiated assignments list, the group does not show a differentiated due date.

    When Multiple Grading Periods are enabled in a course, graded discussions are also respected against closed grading periods.

  • If your institution has enabled Google Docs or Google Drive as a submission type, you can upload a file from Google Drive for an assignment. Unlike other assignment submissions, files from Google Drive are not uploaded into your Canvas user files.

    Canvas accepts Google Doc, Google Sheet, and Google Slide files. You can also upload any uploaded Word (.doc/.docx), Excel (.xls/.xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx), and PDF files not converted to Google Docs formatting.


    • If the Google Docs or Google Drive tab is not available in your submission, your institution has not enabled this feature.
    • If your course displays a link to your Google Drive in the Course Navigation Menu, your course has enabled Google Drive directly. Otherwise, you must enable Google Drive a web service in your user profile to upload Google Drive files.
    • In Google Drive assignments, you can only submit one file for your submission.
    • When Google Drive files (docs, sheets, and slides) are uploaded as a submission, the files convert to their Microsoft counterpart file types and appear in the submission as respective Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files. This conversion essentially preserves the submission in its current state; any changes made to the file in Google Drive will not be updated in the submission.
  • If your instructor allows file uploads as a submission type, you can upload a file from your computer as an assignment submission.

    Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are also copied to your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file. Files are stored in the Submissions folder.

    If your institution has enabled Google Docs as a submission type, you can also upload a file from Google Drive.

    ¿Cómo presento una tarea en línea?

    You can submit online Assignments in Canvas using several submission types. Instructors can choose what kind of online submissions they want you to use. You may also have the option to resubmit assignments if your instructor allows.

    Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are also copied to your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file. Files are stored in the Submissions folder.

    Before submitting an assignment, you may want to review all assignment information, such as the assignment rubric, if any.

    This lesson shows how to turn in a standard online assignment. Learn how to submit a Turnitin assignment or a peer review assignment.

    Third-Party File Application Submissions

    You can submit assignments from Google Drive, Dropbox, or another third-party service via your desktop computer in one of two ways:

    1. Download the file to your computer and submit as a File Upload
    2. Share the file, copy the file URL, and submit as a Website URL

    Mobile Submissions

    You can also submit assignments using your Android or iOS device.


    • Not all file types may be available for your assignment, depending on the assignment submission type set by your instructor.
    • Not all of your assignments may be submitted online. If you cannot see the Submit Assignment link, your instructor may want you to submit your assignment in a different way or the availability date has passed. View the description of the assignment for instructions, or contact your instructor for assistance.
