Submit assignments and check for plagiarism

Assignments can be submitted electronically to Brightspace, and then graded online, making it easier for students to receive grades and feedback on their work. This might save time on emailing assignments, or handing them in on paper.

Let us look at how both individual and group assignments are submitted.

Individual submissions

Once your work is completed, go to the relevant course in Brightspace. Submit your work to Brightspace by using the Assignment tool. On your course page, go to ‘Assignments’ and select the Assignment folder you wish to submit your file to. Click on ‘Add a file’ and select the file from your computer. Upload the file and click ‘Submit’.

Group submissions

The procedure is similar in case you are working in a group and wish to submit your assignment. In this case, go to Groups, under the collaboration tab in the navigation bar. Select the assignment folder of the group you wish to submit your assignment to. Add your file and click Submit. You will then receive a confirmation email saying that the submission was successful. Keep this receipt as proof of your assignment submission.


Once your assignment submission has been processed, you will be able to keep track of your grades and any feedback provided by your instructor.

Use Turnitin to check plagiarism score

If the folder is a Turnitin assignment folder, you might also be able to view your similarity (plagiarism) score.

To view your similarity report in Turnitin you have to first log into Brightspace, enter your course and under your profile click on Progress.


Within the Progress area you then select Assignment. As long as the teacher has enabled the option to allow students to see their similarity scores you will have no trouble accessing the information. Turnitin similarity is shown in a percentage - the percentage of similarities matching your assignment.

If you click on the percentage you enter Turnitin Feedback Studio where you can see the similarity report (with the matching sources), your assignment grade and any comments the teacher might have added. Note that if it is the first time you are logging into Turnitin you first have to click to agree to the Turnitin User Agreement.
