Q. My students will be using Turnitin this semester, and I am unclear about one thing: If students upload a paper, see that they have some originality issues, and then upload it again, is there a delay for that second or subsequent originality reports?
A. If you choose the “immediately (can overwrite reports until due date)” option then there will be a 24 hour delay for the second and subsequent Originality reports to begin processing. Students would need to allot enough time before the due date for resubmission.
