Fixes and enhancements



Manual adjustments to grades now stick during V1 to V2 migration


Following the migration of a Moodle Direct V1 assignment to V2, grades that had been manually adjusted in the Moodle grade book would be overwritten to match the grade originally set in Turnitin Feedback Studio. With this overwrite being completely unintentional, we've made several backend changes to ensure that future manual adjustments within the grade book always remain fixed during migration.

If an administrator failed to delete a Moodle Direct V1 assignment after its migration to V2, the grade of the V1 assignment would remain in the Moodle grade book, causing grades to effectively double. We've now adjusted the behavior of the Moodle Migration Tool to resolve this. So that you no longer need to worry about incorrect grades in the grade book, Moodle V1 assignments are now automatically deleted after migration.


There may be instances where you'll still be required to remove V1 assignments manually (for example, the migration has been successful but there are conflicting grades in the grade book).



Deleting V1 assignments that were migrated prior to plugin v2018031201


You can manually delete your previously migrated assignments from the usual spot in the Moodle Migration Tool; we encourage you to delete these as soon as possible in order to resolve any current issues in the grade book. Any V1 assignments migrated after this update will be automatically deleted.

What's new


Screen Shot 2018-01-12 at 2.41.33 PM.png Instant Similarity Reports for up to three resubmissions


Feedback Studio allows students to view their Similarity Report results immediately! Students can now view their initial Similarity Report, then revise and resubmit their work up to three times, without having to wait 24 hours for an updated report. After three resubmissions have been made, the 24-hour report generation wait time will be restored. Instantaneous similarity results give students the formative support they need to master paraphrasing and citation conventions efficiently.


To enable resubmissions for students, you must correctly configure the assignment settings of a new or existing Moodle Direct V2 assignment.

1. Scroll to Originality Report Options.
2. Under Originality Report Generation and Submissions, select Generate reports immediately (students can resubmit until due date): After 3 resubmissions, reports generate after 24 hours. Read more.



Rubric_icon.png Genre-specific rubrics in Feedback Studio

Revision Assistant's genre-specific rubrics are now available in Feedback Studio, designed with 6th - 12th graders in mind! K-12 instructors can assign new rubrics to their assignments to help their students master the art of argumentative, narrative, informative, and analytical writing. If you're actively using Revision Assistant and Feedback Studio together, you can now promote consistency in the classroom by adopting the same rubrics.


To use a new rubric for grading, you can attach it from within the assignment settings of a new or existing assignment.

1. Scroll to GradeMark options.
2. Under Attach a rubric to this assignment, select a new genre-specific rubric from the drop-down list. Read more.

Alternatively, launch the rubric and grading form manager from the Moodle Direct V2 submission inbox, or alternatively, from within Feedback Studio.

QuickMarks are Turnitin's most popular feedback tool among Feedback Studio instructors! But in finding that many of our default QuickMark sets failed to address the needs of our K-12 instructors and students, we've added two new sets to the Feedback Studio collection. Our new drag-and-drop (and customizable!) comments will help instructors help their students to engage in revision, save time, and more importantly, achieve learning outcomes. Read more.


To view and edit your new QuickMarks, launch the QuickMark manager from the Moodle Direct V2 submission inbox, or alternatively, from within Feedback Studio.
