Use Turnitin’s Online Grading Tools to Create Inline Feedback, Annotate, and Assign a Grade to Assignment Submissions

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

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

Note: Turnitin Online Grading was formerly called GradeMark.
