Make Tii Originality Reports and/or GradeMark available for student view

Instructors can choose to allow student access to Turnitin similarity reports in Assignments folders. Instructors can also elect to use GradeMark to grade Assignments folder submissions.

In all cases, to access feedback from Turnitin Originality Reports and/or create/access GradeMark annotations, users must access Turnitin's Feedback Studio area.

From the student perspective: accessing Feedback Studio

 

To make Originality Reports available to students:

During setup of an Assignments folder in Brightspace LE, instructors select the Turnitin tab and then the "Enable Turnitin for this folder" box to enable Turnitin for the folder. From the same area, instructors can choose to "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores in their submission folder" by selecting the appropriate checkbox.

Instructor's can also choose to leave the checkbox de-selected so students do not have access to view originality reports.

If instructors choose to "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores in their submission folder" then students can see results of the Originality Report after the submission has processed.

To access the similarity reports, students must first access the "Assignment Submission Folders" area of the course and then select the submission history numeral from the Submissions column in the table.

After the submission has processed the student is then able to select the Turnitin Similarity icon from the "Submission History" area which gives access to Feedback Studio - which in turn allows access to reports on similarity specific to the submitted paper.

Make GradeMark accessible to students and use Grademark to annotate papers:

Turnitin must be enabled for the submission folder.

Whether Originality Reports have been released to students or not makes a slight difference* when it comes to making it so that students are able to access the GradeMark area via Feedback Studio on the Turnitin site.

To make GradeMark accessible:

There are various permutations. Here is one:

Instructor selects to view submissions associated with an Assignments folder.

After a student has made a submission and after the submission is processed, the originality "Turnitin Similarity" icon is in view in the "Submissions -" area of the Assignments folder.

To enter the Tii Feedback Studio area, instructors select the "Turnitin Similarity" icon.

Giving a grade in the GradeMark markup area and then publishing Assignments folder feedback is what makes the GradeMark icon become visible to students when accessing the submissions/evaluation area of an Assignments folder. 

Use GradeMark to annotate papers and pass the grade into D2L:

In the Tii Feedback Studio area, instructors can use the grading area to mark up the document. Instructors can also enter a grade for the submission.

After marking up a document, when back in the "Submissions -" area of the Assignments folder, instructors select "Evaluate" to evaluate the submission inside the Brightspace LE Assignment submission folder.

The evaluation area specific to the submission displays.

After the score is in place from work done in Feedback Studio, instructors can select the "Use This Score" link under the Turnitin GradeMark area on the student's evaluation page OR enter a score in the Brightspace LE "Score:" area in the Evaluation box (without using the Feedback Studio score).

Note that if the GradeMark score is not automatically updated in the Evaluate area or if changes to the grade are made in Feedback Studio, instructors can select the "Refresh score" icon from the lower left to update the score from the GradeMark area.

If transferred - the "GradeMark" derived score will now show in the Evaluation box on the D2L submission evaluation page specific to the folder. In either case (transferred score or manually entered score) select "Publish" to release the score for viewing by the student.

The combination of giving a grade in the GradeMark markup area and then publishing of the Brightspace LE Assignments folder feedback is what makes the GradeMark icon become visible to students when they access the submissions/evaluation area of the Assignments folder. Students can then select the GradeMark icon to access the Turnitin Feedback Studio site to view the GradeMark comments, grade, and so forth that have been entered by the instructor.

*If Originality Reports have been released to students, students then have access to the Tii Originality report as well as the GradeMark area via Feedback Studio after a submission(s) has finished processing. Instructors can control access to the GradeMark area of the Turnitin Feedback Studio site via the "GradeMark Available to Learners" feedback release date that can be set via the Turnitin tab of an Assignments folder.

From the student perspective: accessing Feedback Studio

To gain access to the Feedback Studio area, student goes into course, accesses the Turnitin enabled Assignments folder, and selects to view the published feedback.

Dependent on what the instructor has selected when enabling Turnitin for an Assignments folder, students will see different looks:

If the "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores..." IS selected during folder set-up, GradeMark is being used, and feedback has been published, two icons will display to the student.

Students select either "View Turnitin GradeMark" icon or the "View Turnitin Similarity" icon to get to the Feedback Studio area.

If the "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores..." is NOT selected during folder set-up, one icon will display to the student.

After a grade has been posted in GradeMark and Brightspace LE feedback has been published, students see only a GradeMark link for selection:

If the "Allow learners to see Turnitin similarity scores..." is not selected and GradeMark is not utilized, students will not see any icons in the submissions/evaluation area of a Turnitin enabled Assignments folder.


When first accessing the Turnitin Feedback Studio area students are presented with a Turnitin User Agreement. Selecting the "I agree" button will give them access to the area.
