Quick Tips for Mastering Feedback Studio

Easily Navigate Between Student Submissions

Navigate through papers submitted to an assignment by looking in the top right-hand corner of the navigation frame. Here, you will find arrows to move between papers and a drop-down list that allows you to chose from all papers that have been submitted.

Check a Student's Work for Appropriate Citations and Quotations

A student's paper is checked against the search targets selected for the assignment; this may include billions of pages of active and archived internet content, a repository of works previously submitted to Turnitin, and a repository of tens of thousands of periodicals, journals, and publications. 


It is perfectly natural for an assignment to match against some of our database. If your student has used quotes and has referenced correctly, there will be instances where we will find a match. The similarity score simply makes you aware of any potential problem areas in a student's paper; you can then use this as a tool as part of a larger process, in order to determine if the match is or is not acceptable.



See Matching Content, on the Paper, in Context

Selecting any instance of highlighted text on your student's paper will cause the source box to appear on the paper, revealing where in the source the text has been identified, in the context of the original source. This will help you to better interpret the instance of similarity.

Type Inline Comments Anywhere on the Paper

Inline comments allow you to leave text directly on top of your student's paper. From the in-context marking tool, choose the T icon, then begin typing your comment. The comment will automatically be saved. You can move a comment by clicking and dragging it to where you would like to place it.




Format Comments for Feedback Clarity

You can add text, convert text to hyperlinks, and apply simple formatting to your comment for greater clarity in your feedback.

Convert Comments to QuickMarks and Save them to a Library for Easy Reuse

For easy reuse in the assignment you're grading or in other assignments, you can convert a bubble comment into a QuickMark. QuickMarks allow you to create a library of feedback that might be applicable, on multiple occasions, to multiple students, across multiple classes and assignments.

Drag and Drop QuickMarks Anywhere on the Paper

You can access a library of feedback by selecting the QuickMark icon from the navigation bar. Use the search box to find a specific QuickMark. Once you've selected the QuickMark you'd like to add to the paper, drag it from the panel and drop it onto the relevant part of the paper.




Voice Comments to Ensure Feedback is Received Loud and Clear

Access voice comments from the Feedback Summary side panel, where you can also provide overall text-based feedback on a paper. A voice comment can be up to three minutes long.




Customizable Rubrics and Grading Forms for Objective Grading

Rubric scorecards help to evaluate student work, based on defined criteria and scales; they can also be created by your account administrator and shared to all instructors on an account. Instructors can create and share rubric scorecards, too; simply send a rubric or grading form file to another instructor, who can upload it for use in their classes.





Assign a Grade from the Paper View

You can quickly assign a grade to a paper at the top of the page by inputting the grade in the relevant field. This will overwrite any grades calculated via a rubric or grading form.
