Lecturer Guide: How to allow late submissions for Turnitin Assignments.

As Turnitin assignment does not allow individual due date extension, if students have submitted before the due date, they are not able to resubmit after the due date, even if they have been granted an extension.

Manual deletion is required to allow resubmission after the due date. Please follow instructions below.

Alternative methods can be found in the Reference Document at the top right block of this page. In this document are instructions which enable the lecturer to change the due date to a later date or to create a second part to the assignment.
