How do I view feedback in Turnitin?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 24 November 2015, 4:54 PM)

After an assignment has been marked, you will be notified via email.  Assignments which consist of a Turnitin component require that you click the blue grademark pencil icon on the assignment summary screen in order to access assessor feedback.  Take note of the following screenshots:

Clicking either the Similarity Index or the Grademark pencil, will open a new browser window from which you may view feedback on your assignment or download a PDF copy.

There are three primary forms of feedback:

  1. General or overall feedback.  This feedback will include text comments and may optionally include voice comments (not pictured).
  2. Inline comments are those which correspond to specific parts of your paper.
  3. Comments associated with parts of the marking rubric (if used).

It is important that you click through all the icons on the bottom right of the comments pane in order to view all the feedback.  You may optionally download your marked assignment as pictured in the previous screenshot.
