Q. How do I download student papers for offline viewing from Turnitin?
There may be times you wish to view student papers offline. The steps below show how to download all the submitted papers from one assignment in bulk.
Navigate to Course Tools > Turnitin Assignments > [name of assignment] so that you are viewing the inbox. Tick the checkbox in the first row of the column on the left to select all papers, then select ‘download’ then ‘original file’.
A message will be displayed while the download is being prepared.
This may take some time depending on the number of papers. Either use the link in the previous message, or navigate to the ‘Messages’ tab at a later time. The messages tab is at the top right of any Turnitin Inbox view.
Select the message to find your download link.
The download will be a zip file which you can open on your computer. The files will have the paper ID prefixed in the filename. You can use this identifier to match them up for marking if the assignment is anonymous. If it is not anonymous, the filenames will also contain last name and first name of the submitter. To help locate papers submitted to anonymous assignments, you can return to the Turnitin inbox (Course Tools > Turnitin Assignments > [name of assignment]) and click on the table heading Paper ID to sort the table by ascending order.
