How do I mark an assignment in the new version of Turnitin?(staff) 

We recommend starting to mark after the due date to prevent student’s assignments from being overwritten.   

  • Go to the module that you are marking 
  • Go to the area where the submission point has been created (normally this is Assessment and Feedback) 
  • Click on the Turnitin submission point and the assignment inbox will open in a new window: 

 Assignment inbox in Turnitin. Each student is on a different row, with paper title, paper ID, uploaded date and time, whether students have viewed their submission, grade pencil, similarity score, flags, options

  • To grade an assignment, select the pencil icon: 

 Pencil icon highlighted in Assignment inbox

  • The assignment will open in the feedback studio for you to mark and leave feedback. For information on how to use the grading tools, see our Quick Start Guide to Turnitin.  

  • Alternatively The Turnitin assignment inbox can be accessed via the Gradebook tab in Blackboard.
