Instructor Assignment Inbox

The Feedback Studio for iPad assignment inbox allows you to manage your students' submissions.


The assignment inbox provides the following information:


  • A list of students in the class
  • A paper's submission date
  • A paper's title
  • The grade you have assigned to a paper
  • A paper's similarity score
  • Notification of a past due paper
  • The assignment's key dates


Note: A red clock icon alongside a submission date indicates that the submission was submitted late.


Accessing the Inbox



Tap your class name from the Classes page.

Note: Class sections can be created by converting a standard class to a master class. Master classes are useful when sections of a class are taught by other instructors (referred to as teaching assistants in a Turnitin master class). A top-level master class is created to oversee the section classes. Click here for more guidance on creating master classes and managing sections.
