Note: If you try to uncheck the Gradebook option for a turnitin assignment it says "Turnitin assignments must be displayed in the gradebook", then you will need to contact Support via How do I contact Blackbaud K-12 Support? and provide the following: Name of the Teacher(s), Course(s), and what it should be changed from and to. So for example. John Smith, English 1-C (5) , change from Marking Period to Year.
