QuickMark Manager

A QuickMark is the Turnitin term for 'reusable comments', allowing instructors to use the same mark across their classes and assignments, without the need to recreate it.

 

The QuickMark Manager stores every QuickMark that has been created by you, and also stores any QuickMarks that other instructors have shared with your account. The Turnitin Feedback Studio provides QuickMark sets ready for use when you first create your account: Composition, Composition Marks, Format, Punctuation, and Usage. Each set contains a multitude of comments to assist you as you provide student feedback.


You can perform the following actions in the QuickMark Manager:

 

  • create new QuickMark sets;
  • create new QuickMark comments;
  • edit sets or comments;
  • delete sets;
  • delete comments from sets;
  • upload and download sets; and
  • archive comments.

The QuickMark Manager can be accessed from two areas within the Turnitin Feedback Studio.
