The document viewer is able to display the following file types in GradeMark:
Note: Turnitin converts all documents into PDF format. To view hyperlinks, transitions and animations in a file, the original file is available for download in its original format. Click here for guidance on downloading submitted files.
For files where GradeMark is unable to display the file in the Document Viewer. Instructors are then able to evaluate the file using a grading template in GradeMark. The grading template maintains all of the functionality of GradeMark except for the ability to view the file within the Document Viewer.
Instructors may use the grading template for assignments that do not require a submission (i.e. speeches, presentations, performances, or works of art).
An instructor can access the GradeMark system from any one of four locations within Turnitin:
To mark a paper in the GradeMark system from the assignment inbox, student portfolio page, or grade book grading page the instructor will click on the pencil icon under the grade column to the right of the paper that needs to be marked. A new window will open displaying the GradeMark interface. Using this interface, an instructor can add marks, general comments, and location specific comments to a student paper as well as entering a numeric grade.
Note: If a gray pencil icon appears in the GradeMark column, then a file has not been submitted by the student to the assignment. The instructor can grade a student without a submission by clicking on the grey pencil icon.
Grading without submission allows an instructor to grade student work such as presentations, speeches, performances or works of art.
If an instructor grades without a submission and the assignment is set to generate reports “Immediately (first report is final)” the student will not be able to submit to the assignment once a grading template is created.
