Turnitin Feedback Studio — January 1, 2017
How Does It Work
Why Use Turnitin Feedback Studio
Turnitin has taken all of the feedback features, including Originality Check, GradeMark, QuickMarks, voice comments, rubrics, etc., and made them easier and more intuitive to use. With Turnitin Feedback Studio, we’re better supporting instructors and students in focusing on feedback that helps drive learning.
Turnitin Feedback Studio is a modern, responsive design that incorporates an intuitive user experience that brings together the grading, feedback, and similarity checking services in one view. They have also incorporated the contextual marking approach of their iPad app to allow educators to click anywhere on the paper and leave a comment, QuickMark Comment, or text comment at any time.
Creating A Turnitin Assignment – You create a Turnitin assignment as you always have – nothing changes. Just go to a content area of a Blackboard course, click “Assessments” and select “Turnitin Assignment”.
Creating a Revision Assignment – Creating a “Revision Assignment” is identical in this version as well.
Is it Possible to Test the new Version?
YES, you can test the new version, right now!
As it so happens, Turnitin has created a site you can explore. The website provides a short demo detailing the new interface and functionality, Take A Short Tour. When the demo ends, you will be taken to a “working” document that you can check for plagiarism and markup, using the more modern, responsive design, with its simplified intuitive user experience.
