The Assignments tool in TRACS allows instructors to create, distribute, collect, and grade online assignments. Student submissions are private and student submissions are not visible to other users.

Assignments offers multiple grading options and can be returned, with or without grades, or for re-submission. When instructors release grades for an assignment, students can access instructor comments and their grades.

The Assignments Tool is able to verify student submissions through the Turnitin anti-plagiarism service and can also be added to Gradebook.

To access this tool, select the Assignments Tool from the left side tool menu of your site.

Use Turnitin with Assignments

TRACS Assignments has Turnitin integration. Simply enable the feature on your assignment settings page. Originality reports will generate for each student directly on your assignment grade page.

It is not necessary to have an account created with Turnitin before creating your assignment, nor is it necessary for students to create a Turnitin account.
