Turnitin News – Supplemental: Sync between Turnitin and Grade Centre

Update: Please note that issues adding submissions to the Turnitin Feedback Studio app for iPad directly via Safari web browser have been resolved. Please see the previous Turnitin News March Addendum post for details.

Current Issues affecting Turnitin Feedback Studio and the Turnitin/Blackboard Integration

We have detected issues with the syncing of grades between Turnitin and the studentcentral grade centre. If you are involved in marking students work using Turnitin, or involved in the administration of grades between Studentcentral and CAMS, please read on.

When a tutor marks and grades a script in Turnitin, this grade is sent to the studentcentral grade centre. It is from here that school offices download grades ready for importing into CAMS. We have identified that this ‘syncing’ of grades between the two systems is not happening automatically as expected.

We advise that all tutors should manually ‘sync grades’ once grading is complete, to ensure the studentcentral grade centre receives the up to date grades. Any subsequent changes to marks in Turnitin should be followed with a ‘sync grades’. This will ensure school offices receive the correct grades for students work.

To manually ‘sync grades’

  • Within a Studentcentral module, go to the Control Panel > Course Tools > Turnitin Assignments
  • You will see a list of Turnitin assignments. The sync grades button is located on the right side of the screen. You will need to ‘sync’ for each submission point you are marking
