How to view feedback in the Turnitin Feedback Studio

The Instructor Feedback panel
1. Click on the speech bubble icon in the right-hand menu to open the ‘Instructor Feedback’ panel.
If a Rubric or Grading Form was used to provide feedback on your work, click on the View Rubric button.
2. If a Voice Comment has been left, click the Play button to listen to audio feedback from your lecturer.
3. The Text Comment area provides a space for a summary of your assignment as a whole.
The Rubric scorecard shows the assessment criteria used to mark your assignment. You can use this to see how you were marked on each of the criteria used.
Comments inserted in the text of your paper may be linked to one of the Rubric criteria.
Download your marked paper
You can download a copy of your marked paper to keep on your computer or print out along with any feedback and comments made.
Make sure you have enabled the Grading and Similarity Layers – meaning you can see the similarity report and QuickMarks on the paper in the window.
Click on the Download button on the toolbar.
Click on Current View from the menu that appears.
A PDF copy of your assignment – with feedback comments – will be downloaded to your computer. When viewing the PDF, feedback is listed at the end of the document.
If you want to download a copy of the work you submitted – without any marks or feedback – choose ‘Originally Submitted File’.
