Submit and Evaluate PowerPoint
Students are often asked to demonstrate their knowledge and communications skills in various disciplines by making presentations. As part of our Evaluate Anything℠ initiative, Turnitin now supports student work submitted in the powerful and popular PowerPoint presentation format. Turnitin instructors can check originality, provide feedback using QuickMark comments, voice comments and rubrics, and include the submission in a peer review exercise. Turnitin converts the PowerPoint slide deck into a static PDF, leaving all text and images in their original format but leaving out dynamic touches like embedded video and animations. The ability to submit PowerPoint presentations may not be available through some integrations.
Turnitin now conforms to the widely used Learning Tools Interoperablity™ standard LTI 1.1 from IMS global, which enables straightforward integration with most leading LMS providers. The integration provides access to core Turnitin functionality such as OriginalityCheck, PeerMark, GradeMark, Rubric Manager, and more. You can check the compatibility of your LMS on the IMS Website. Customers interested in the new Turnitin
LTI-compliant integration should contact an account representative.
Student papers residing as Google Drive™ or Dropbox files can now be submitted directly to Turnitin. Work stored in the Google Drive format will automatically convert to a PDF file as it's submitted to Turnitin. Files from Google Drive or Dropbox in the following formats will be accepted in the existing format: MS Word, WordPerfect, PostScript, PDF, HTML, RTF, OpenOffice (ODT), Hangul (HWP), PowerPoint (PPT) and plain text. This feature is available for single paper uploads only and may not be accessible to all integration users.

Common Core Rubrics Reports
Administrators at schools with access to the Turnitin Common Core State Standards-aligned rubrics (secondary and 2-yr. colleges in the U.S.) can now download account data regarding the use of the CCSS rubrics. The report is formatted as an Excel® spreadsheet that includes:
- date range for a selected rubric
- cumulative report on rubric usage for the account and for each class
- report on each assignment that uses the rubric
- average overall rubric score by assignment
- assignment score broken down by the rubric criterion
- number of assignment papers receiving a score, by criterion
Instructors interested in viewing the CCSS rubric report for a class should contact their institution’s Turnitin administrator.
