How can we help?

We’re moving our guides on 9th March 2019. See a preview of their new home at
Home > User Guides > Instructor Guides > Feedback Studio > Commenting Tools > QuickMarks


QuickMarks allow you to create a library of feedback that might be applicable, on multiple occasions, to multiple students, across multiple classes and assignments.

Adding a QuickMark on the Paper



You can add a QuickMark to both a selection of text or on the full paper.



To add a QuickMark to the full paper, click on the paper and select the QuickMark icon from the in-context marking tool. This will allow you to choose a QuickMark to leave on the paper.





To add a QuickMark to a selection of text, highlight the section of text you would like to associate the QuickMark with, and click the QuickMark icon from the in-context marking tool. This appears as a tick inside a rectangular box.




By clicking the set title at the top of the QuickMark box, this will reveal a dropdown list, allowing you to change the active library.

Adding a QuickMark from the Side Panel


You are also able to add QuickMarks by using the side panel. One of the most useful features that are accessible by adding QuickMarks via the side panel is the ability to search through all the QuickMarks currently attached to the account. 



Open the QuickMark side panel by selecting the QuickMark icon in the navigation bar.


The current QuickMark set will be displayed in the side panel. You can use the search box to find a specific QuickMark.

Note: The search will look at both the title and the body of the QuickMark




Once you've found a QuickMark that you'd like to use on the paper drag and drop it onto the relevant part of the paper.

Deleting a QuickMark  



Click the QuickMark to open the QuickMark



Click the trash can icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the QuickMark box.
