Use GradeMark to Create Inline Feedback, Annotate, and Assign a Grade to Assignment Submissions

If TurnItIn is enabled for your submission folder, Instructors can use GradeMark functionality to add comments, insert inline text, and highlight sections in file submissions, directly in the Assignments tool.

To make GradeMark accessible to students, a grade must be assigned in the GradeMark document. Instructors can use the GradeMark grade in the TCU Online feedback area or not, depending on preference.

    11. The score will update in the Evaluation panel on the right side of the Submission Evaluation page.  Modify the score if needed, add additional feedback, attach files, audio or video.

Note: The GradeMark score and feedback are saved as a default. Scores must be published by the instructor for students to be able to see the Feedback.

Once published, students will see a link called View Inline Feedback in the Assignment, Grades, and User Progress.

If Originality Reports were created and have been released to students, students then have access to the Turnitin Originality report as well as the GradeMark area via Feedback Studio after a submission(s) has finished processing.
