The Feedback Studio tool allows instructors to leave their feedbacks on their students' submissions, once the post date of a paper has passed, students are able to access any grades, comments, or requested changes noted by the instructor.
Turnitin Feedback Studio contains several tools that instructors can use in grading and assessing papers:
The QuickMark Manager stores every QuickMark that you have created besides the already existing QuickMark sets that the Turnitin Feedback Studio provides in Composition, Composition Marks, Format, Punctuation, and Usage. Each set contains a number of comments to assist you as you provide student feedback.
The QuickMark Manager can be accessed from two areas within the Turnitin Feedback Studio:
1. Click on the QuickMarks icon from the blue Grading toolbar.
2. Select a specific set or use the search box to search for a specific QuickMark.
3. Drag your QuickMark from the panel and drop it into the relevant part of the paper.
4. To leave a comment together with your QuickMark, click your QuickMark title on the paper & scroll down & click on the Add comment to begin typing, then click outside of the comment to save your comment.
