Submit & Evaluate PowerPoint

Accept and Evaluate PowerPointStudents are often asked to demonstrate their knowledge and communication skills in various disciplines by giving presentations. Instructors and students can now submit PowerPoint presentation files to Turnitin to be checked for similarity and to give and get feedback with QuickMark® comments, voice comments, rubrics, and more.

PowerPoint files (.pptx, .ppt, .ppsx, and .pps) can be submitted via file upload, Google Drive™, or Dropbox and will be converted to a static PDF. The text and images on the slides will be visible and available for feedback in the Document Viewer and Turnitin for iPad® app; however any dynamic elements such as slide animations, transitions, presenter notes, and audio/video are not available.

Also in this release, we:

  • made printed or downloaded documents with feedback appear in color;
  • launched an LTI-compliant API which will improve the quality of LMS integrations;
  • added language support for Romanian;
  • fixed some bugs and improved performance.
