Staff: Turnitin GradeMark Removed

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.

You can familiarise yourself with the new layout, by watching a short video. We have also built a full set of support guides to provide assistance if required.

If you would like help with Feedback Studio, please contact your Faculty Support or the Learning Technologies Team via the Service Desk.

Resolved – Turnitin receipt issues

From the 02/05/17 to 31/05/17 some users may not have received email receipts for assignments submitted to Turnitin. This has now been resolved.

Any receipts that students have not received via email up to 31/05/17 will not be resent. Students can still download the digital receipt manually, information on how to do this can be found in our previous blog posting: https://vleservice.wordpress.com/2017/02/14/intermittent-email-receipts-from-turnitin/

If students don’t receive an email receipt within 24 hours of a submission on or after 01/06/17 then please contact the IT Service Desk so we can follow up the issue.
