Turnitin – How do I download a student’s Turnitin assignment receipt?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

For: StaffApplication: Assignments

Note: This guide is relevant until mid-August 2022. Guidance relevant to the new QMplus theme will then be available here

When students submit an assignment through QMplus, they receive a number of notifications:

  1. A notification of successful submission to QMplus
  2. A notification of successful submission to Turnitin

How they receive these notifications depends on how they have configured their messaging preferences in QMplus. By default, the notifications will be sent by email to their QMUL email addresses.

It is not possible for anyone other than the student to obtain a copy of these notifications. It is possible for a teacher to obtain a copy of the Turnitin digital receipt, however it is worth remembering that this is not the information that is sent to the student in the notification that they get on submitting.

If you would like more detail on what is in the notifications that get sent to students, please see our Submission receipts for assignments guide for students.
