Turnitin: QuickMarks – Create a QuickMark Set

QuickMarks is the name used within Turnitin for frequently used comments that can be inserted into a student’s assignment. These comments can be created, saved and re-used on any assignment from an individual marker’s library of comments.  They are available from the QuickMarks section of the Instructor Feedback toolbar when marking an assignment using the Turnitin Feedback Studio.

How to Access the QuickMark manager

To create and edit your Quick Marks, and curate your collection, can all be done from the Quick Marks Manager.
