ANGEL Integration Student Manual
Welcome to the student usage section of the Turnitin ANGEL Integration Manual. This
section will educate students on how to submit papers to a Turnitin Drop Box. Other
topics that will be covered are: how to resubmit to an assignment, a walkthrough of
the assignment inbox interface and how to view an Originality Report.
Submitting a Paper
Student users submit papers to a Turnitin Drop Box from the Turnitin assignment
inbox for that particular Drop Box. To access the Turnitin assignment inbox the
student will need to click on the Lessons link and then click on a Turnitin assignment.
A user agreement may be opened from this action. If agreed to, the assignment inbox
will open.
File Types and Size
Turnitin currently accepts the following file types for upload into an assignment:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Microsoft Word™ (DOC and DOCX)
Corel WordPerfect®
HTML
Adobe PostScript®
Plain text (TXT)
Rich Text Format (RTF)
Portable Document Format (PDF)
The file size may not exceed 20 MB. Files of larger size may be reduced in size by
removal of non-text content or the instructor may be contacted to request multiple
assignments to submit the document in sections.
Note: Text only files may not exceed 2 MB.
Note: PDF documents must contain text to be submitted. PDF files containing
only images of text will be rejected during the upload attempt. To determine
if a document contains actual text, copy and paste a section or all of the text
into a plain-text editor such as Microsoft Notepad or Apple TextEdit. If no text
is copied over, the selection is not actual text.
Tip: Users submitting scanned images of a document or an image saved as a
PDF will need to use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to convert
the image to a text document. Manual correction of the resulting document is
highly recommended to fix any errors caused by the conversion software.

Student User Manual
Section: How to Submit a Paper
Note: Some document formats can contain multiple data types. This includes
text, images, embedded information from another file, and formatting.
Non-text information that is not saved directly within the document will not
be included in a file upload. This includes references to a Microsoft Excel®
spreadsheet included within a Microsoft Office Word document.
Note: Users whose files are saved in a file type that is not accepted by
Turnitin will need to use a word processing program to save the file as one
of the accepted types. Rich Text Format and Plain Text file types are nearly
universally available in word processing software. Neither file type will support
images or non-text data within the file. Plain text format does not support any
formatting, and rich text format supports only limited formatting options.
Tip: When converting a file to a new file format, users should rename their
file with a name other than that of the original file. This is suggested to
prevent permanent loss of the original formatting or image content of a file
due to it being overwritten.
How to Submit a Paper
To submit a paper to a Turnitin drop box in ANGEL, the user must log in and upload
a file to an existing drop box. Turnitin drop boxes cannot accept student submissions
until the assignment start date and time has passed. Drop boxes may also reject
submissions after the due date and time set by the instructor.
To check the start date and due date information, click on the Lessons tab and
then click on the Turnitin drop box. This action opens the Turnitin assignment inbox
showing Turnitin assignment information, including start and due dates/times as well
as other assignment information or special instructions.
Click on the “i” icon to the right of the assignment to view the assignment details
containing information about whether resubmissions and late submissions are allowed.

Section: Single File Upload
There are two options for a student to submit a paper: single file upload or cut and

the file from their computer.
Warning: Make sure that the file type being submitted can be accepted by
Turnitin.
Note: Users whose files are saved in a file type that is not accepted by
Turnitin will need to use a word processing program to save the file as one
of the accepted types. Rich Text Format and Plain Text file types are nearly
universally available in word processing software. Neither file type will support
images or non-text data within the file. Plain text format does not support any
formatting, and rich text format supports only limited formatting options.

Submitting a paper by copy and
paste:
4. Fill in the submission title field and copy
the text from the text document. This
must be done from a word processor
able to open the file you wish to submit
content from. Do not manually type

which could cause the user login to
time-out, losing all the entered data
Tip: To cut and paste text, highlight the
text of a paper in a word processing or
text editing program and select copy
from the edit menu. To transfer the text
into the browser, place the mouse cursor
in the text box of the submission page
and select paste from the browser’s edit
menu
5. Click submit to complete the cut and
paste submission of the text pasted into
the content box
Resubmitting
Some assignments may allow students the ability to overwrite their previous
submissions until the due date and time set for the assignment. This option can be
set by the instructor on an assignment by assignment basis. If overwriting is not
enabled, the instructor must manually delete a previous submission to allow the
student user to submit a second file.
Note: Only a single file may be submitted by a student user to any Turnitin
assignment. Any second or subsequent submission will overwrite the original
file submission in this assignment. Multiple files cannot be uploaded to the
same assignment by a student.
Tip: If there is more than one file that must be submitted to complete
the directions given by an instructor, contact the instructor immediately.
Additional assignments may be created, or the student users may need to
combine multiple documents into a single file of an acceptable file type to be
uploaded into Turnitin.

Section: How to Resubmit to an Assignment
How to Resubmit to an Assignment
If resubmission by overwrite has been enabled or an instructor has deleted the
student user’s first submission, resubmitting a paper is handled in an identical
manner as a first time submission to an assignment. Follow the steps for a first time
submission as listed in this handbook.
Note: When a student user clicks on the Resubmit button in the class
portfolio page for an assignment allowing overwrite resubmission, a warning
pop-up will appear. This serves to notify the student user that, if available,
Originality Reports for any resubmission that is made in this assignment will
require an additional twenty four hour delay to generate.
This applies to all submissions past the first submission made by any student
user in any assignment.
Originality Reports
Instructors can choose for each assignment whether or not to allow students to view
Originality Reports. If a student has been given access to Originality Reports, they
can view their report by clicking on an assignment from the student homepage. This
action will take the student to the assignment’s inbox. In this screen the student can
click the Originality Report icon to view their Originality Report. For more information
about Originality Reports click here to view the Originality Report chapter of the
Student User manual.
Assignment Inbox Preference and Help Menus
The preferences and help menus in the Assignment inbox provide easy access to
customizing the assignment inbox and links to user guides, training videos and a
