View marks and feedback for Turnitin assignments from previous academic years

Important: Students no longer have access to Turnitin submission points for courses prior to 22/23 academic years. If  you would like to download the work or check Turnitin Feedback for 21/22 or previous year courses, please contact your Student Support Centre via “Ask a Question” in RISIS.




 We have switched to a new version of Turnitin.

The new version of Turnitin is being used

  • for all assignments due 1st August or later – including coursework resubmissions and resit exams
  • on all Blackboard courses for 2022/23.

This article shows you how to locate feedback on assignments from previous academic years – 2021/22 and earlier.

For the new Turnitin LTI assignments see Turnitin assignments: Finding your Marks and Feedback


How can I access my marks and feedback?

Via the Turnitin assignment directly

Go to the Turnitin assignment in the Assessment area (where you originally submitted your assignment) and click on the View / Complete link.Screenshot of the Turnitin 'View/Complete' link

Then on the View button (if this is greyed out, then your marks have not yet been released).

Turnitin assignment inbox with the View button highlighted

This will open the Feedback Studio where you can see your mark and any feedback left by the marker – see How to view feedback in the Turnitin Feedback Studio

Via My Marks and Feedback 

The recent issue with accessing Turnitin via My Marks & Feedback has now bene resolved (20th January 2022).

Click on the My Marks and Feedback link on the course menu.

On the next screen, click on the “My Paper” icon to open the submission in the Feedback Studio.

The assignment information page with the "my paper" link highlighted.

For some Turnitin assignments your tutor may provide feedback as an attached file. You won’t be able to access this from the Turnitin Feedback Studio – you have to go via My Marks to view this type of feedback. On the Review Assignment page look under Feedback From Instructor to find an attached file. If in doubt, please check with the marker.


If you receive this error: Error 124: Object ID missing or invalid go directly to the Turnitin Assignment and click on View/Complete (as you did when you submitted your work). Please also get in touch with your Support Centre. This error means that Turnitin has not passed the grades back to Blackboard yet. The Programme administrators can manually initiate this process.
