Provide Feedback and Grade a Paper Online (Movie 4:04)
Instructors can add comments and rubrics to students’ submissions. Grading a paper online eliminates the need to download a paper.

Learn How to Create Grading Rubrics and Grading Forms
Grading Forms allow you to create a rubric that has a list of criteria that contains free response text fields and the ability to score each criterion and are used to grade a “live presentation.”

Learn How to View/Use a Rubric when Grading a Submission
There are two ways to grade using a rubric: sliders and in the expanded rubric manager.

Allowing Submissions After the Assignment Due Date
By default Turnitin assignments will not accept submissions from students after the assignment’s due date has passed. To accept submissions after the assignment due date, use the advanced assignment options to set the assignment to allow late submissions.

Submitting a Paper for a Student
An instructor can submit a paper for an enrolled student or in the name of a non-enrolled student.

Removing Papers from an Assignment Inbox
Only the instructor of a class can remove a paper from an assignment inbox. Removing a paper will allow a student to resubmit to the assignment. The paper can be removed using the delete button in the inbox.

Creating a Revision Assignment
The revision assignment is an opportunity for a student to write about what they learned from the writing process as well as offer feedback on the assignment they worked on. This is most useful in classes that emphasize and teach the writing process. The reflection assignment is an assignment that can be given a grade score (applies only to the Grade Center user) and is an assignment that is stacked under the original assignment.
