Turnitin GradeMark, the predecessor to Turnitin Feedback Studio, has now been removed by Turnitin.
Feedback Studio will now be the only Turnitin marking interface available when you access assignments, you will no longer be able to access the ‘Classic’ interface.
Any users who were still using Turnitin GradeMark will automatically be switched to Turnitin Feedback Studio. Feedback Studio provides the same features as GradeMark and should be familiar to staff. All pre-existing marks, rubrics and QuickMarks will continue to work as per GradeMark.
Turnitin Feedback Studio, the replacement for Turnitin GradeMark, has now been enabled on the VLE.
Feedback Studio will now be the default marking interface when you access assignments through Turnitin; and the changes will apply to all assignments.
Turnitin Feedback Studio provides the same features as GradeMark and should be familiar to staff. All pre-existing marks, rubrics and QuickMarks will continue to work as per GradeMark.
Turnitin Feedback Studio, which is the replacement for Turnitin GradeMark, will be enabled on Thursday 29th September.
Turnitin Feedback Studio provides the same features as GradeMark and should be familiar to staff, as it looks to streamline the marking workflow. There are two useful new features:
- the ability to view submission by page
- comments can now be formatted with the inclusion of web links and text styles
It’s worth noting that all pre-existing content Rubrics and QuickMarks will continue to work as per GradeMark. Therefore the only adjustment will be the need to familiarise yourself with the new layout, which we have built a short support video for, see the video here. We have also built a full set of support guides to provide assistance if required.
