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 Plagiarism Plugin assignment.

1. Scroll to Turnitin plagiarism plugin settings.
2. Under Report Generation Speed, select Generate reports immediately (students can resubmit until due date): After 3 resubmissions, reports generate after 24 hours.



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 Turnitin plagiarism plugin settings.
2. Under Attach a rubric to this assignment, select a new genre-specific rubric from the drop-down list.

Alternatively, launch the rubric and grading form manager from within Feedback Studio.



Screen Shot 2018-01-12 at 2.30.10 PM.png K-12 QuickMark sets in 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, you can access the QuickMark manager from within the assignment settings of a new or existing assignment.

1. Scroll to Turnitin plagiarism plugin settings.
2. Select Launch QuickMark manager to view and manage your new QuickMarks.

Alternatively, launch the QuickMark manager from within in Feedback Studio.

 Fixes and enhancements



Resubmissions now overwrite the previous submission

When a student made a resubmission to Turnitin, their previous submission wasn't removed from the assignment inbox; this led to confusion for instructors, who weren't too sure which submission was the most up-to-date version. We've made sure that resubmissions now overwrite the existing submission.





Students can submit their group work without access error issues

Students have frustratingly been receiving unauthorized access errors when submitting group work, which caused some confusion. After uploading their submission and navigating to the View all submissions page, the student would witness the error. We've made a solid fix to stop this from happening! A big thanks to @micaherne for this pull request.
