7. Identify if a student has attempted to submit an assignment
On occasions, you may need to check student engagement to decide if students have attempted to submit an assignment. There are two methods to run a report (or ask Digital Learning Service to investigate, see contact details at the bottom of this page).
a. To view if the student has accessed the Turnitin submission box, run the ‘Student Overview for Single Course’ module report for that student from within the affected module via Module Management. Find out how via the guide: Module Reports
b. You can also use EesySoft module reports for assessment engagement. Refer to the Eesysoft Guide for more information.
