Viewing Instructor Feedback

Turnitin gives your instructor a suite of tools to grade your paper with. On your paper, you will find an overall grade, QuickMark comments, which might highlight areas of improvement (or areas of good work), and places where you have met the marking criteria for an assignment, using rubrics.


Once the post date of a paper has passed, as a student, you are able to access the marked version of your paper and view any grades, comments, marks, or requested changes noted by your instructor.

Overall Grade

 

You can view your paper's overall grade from the top right-hand corner of the Turnitin Feedback Studio. You can also see the maximum marks available for this assignment.

 

Strike Through Text

 

Your instructor may feel that parts of your paper are not entirely necessary. They may choose to strike through pieces of text to advise you that it should be removed or looked at again.

Edit section

Inline comments

 

Inline comments are comments made by an instructor that appear directly on top of your paper. These comments are usually brief.

 

Bubble Comments

 

Bubble comments allow your instructor to provide you with more detailed feedback. A bubble comment may be highlighted and linked to a specific piece of text.

 

 

Alternatively, a bubble comment may be placed alongside a line or paragraph. This is usually the case if your instructor is making a more general comment about your paper.

 

 

1. Click the bubble comment icon on your paper to view your instructor's comment.

 

 

2. Scroll through your instructor's bubble comment, if necessary, then click anywhere outside of the comment winow to close it.

 

 

Viewing a Criterion Assigned to a Bubble Comment

 

If your instructor has attached a rubric to your assignment, they may have assigned a rubric or grading form criterion to a bubble comment left on your paper. The bubble comment will generally be linked to the theme or topic of the rubric or grading form criterion.

 

Note: Criterion can only be assigned to a bubble comment if a rubric or grading form is attached to the assignment, so don't be alarmed if your paper does not include this.

 

1.  If a criterion has been assigned to one of your bubble comment, the bubble comment icon will be displayed with a rubric icon inside it. Click the icon to open the bubble comment and view the criterion attached to it.

 

2. The criterion assigned to the bubble comment is displayed in the top left-hand corner of the bubble comment box.

 

 

You can also view the bubble comments with assigned criterion in the rubric and grading form manager.

 

QuickMarks

 

QuickMarks allow your instructor to create a library of feedback that might be applicable, on multiple occasions, to multiple students, across multiple classes and assignments. A QuickMark may be a word or phrase, or may even be an abbreviation.

 

A QuickMark may be highlighted and labeled to refer to a specific piece of text.

 

 

Alternatively, a QuickMark may be placed alongside a line or paragraph. This is usually the case if your instructor is making a more general comment about your paper.

 

 

1. Click on the QuickMark to view the definition of the mark.

 

 

2. Scroll through the QuickMark information, then click anywhere outside of the expanded QuickMark to close it.

 

General Instructor Feedback

 

The Instructor Feedback side panel allows your instructor to give you more general feedback about your entire paper. They can do this in two ways: by leaving a voice comment or by leaving a text comment.

 

Voice Comments

 

To make your feedback more personalized, your instructor may leave you a voice comment regarding your paper. This can save your instructor time and can make explanations clearer and more detailed for you as a student.

 

1. To access voice comments, click the speech bubble icon from the product toolbar

1. To view your instructor's text comment, click the speech bubble icon from the product toolbar.
