‘This is a draft submission’ warning

Turnitin may warn you about draft submissions, even if the due date has passed and students are no longer be able to resubmit

Tii Draft Warning

This warning should only appear if you are viewing papers on an assignment where…

  • the due date has not yet been reached
  • students are allowed to submit multiple times

… because any grades/feedback you give would be deleted should the student upload a new submission.

However, this warning is also appearing on individual student’s submissions where Turnitin cannot show the submission in the document viewer (eg if the student has uploaded a ZIP file)

As long as the due date has passed, students will not be able to resubmit so you can safely ignore this message.

This has been reported to Turnitin, who tell us there is no ETA on a fix for this bug.
