  2. Navigate to the folder or area within the course where the Turnitin dropbox is located
  3. Under the assignment name, click on the View Assignment link

  6. Use the calendar icon to the right of the Start Date, Due Date, and Post Date to make changes to each deadline. The Post Date refers to when the Turnitin report and grade comments will be available to students.
