Recycle a Turnitin assignment

1. Introduction

This guide explains how to recycle Turnitin assignments that you have copied from one module to another.

Why do I have to recycle copied assignments?

Copied Turnitin assignments retain the same start date, due date and post date as the original. This means that students will not be able to make any submissions to the assignment, unless you recycle the assignment submission box.

NB: The copied assignment will not appear in MyBeckett's Grade Centre automatically.

If you try to create or edit a copied Turnitin assignment before recycling, you will see a message prompting you to recycle the assignment.

What happens when I recycle a copied assignment?

Recycling a Turnitin assignment clears all existing Turnitin assignment data from your MyBeckett module. This allows you to create new assignments, or set a new start date, due date and post date for copied assignments. 

Note: The original data is retained in Turnitin, but is no longer attached to the new module in MyBeckett.
