Turnitin Feedback Studio

Turnitin Feedback Studio provides you with a simple interface designed to make grading an efficient and holistic experience. Using QuickMarks, you can give students feedback with on-paper context, and use rubrics to provide consistent feedback across classes. Access to an intuitive Similarity Report provides text matches and an indicative similarity score that will help you to understand the origin of student work.


Administrators using Turnitin Feedback Studio, help to manage Turnitin features for their institution, enroll instructors, view account statistics, and create QuickMarks or rubrics that can be shared with the entire institution.
