Announcement: 24-hour Wait Time for Resubmission Removed

From Turnitin

Many customers have been asking for Turnitin to remove the 24-hour wait time for resubmission of an assignment. 

Now if a Turnitin assignment is set to allow for multiple drafts, students do not have to wait a day before resubmitting a new draft after they receive their automatic feedback and similarity score.  This can be set by the instructor when developing the assignment.  See the below email for more details.

This has some nice pedagogical implications such as allowing students to learn from and correct mistakes right away as part of their assignment.
