This guide relates only to assignments created using the new Turnitin LTI assignment tool.
What are QuickMarks?
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.
Open a submitted paper in the Feedback Studio, click on the QuickMarks blue tick box on the right-hand Instructor Feedback toolbar.
Click on the Manage QuickMarks Cog
This will open the Quick Mark Manager. You can select existing collections, manage existing QuickMarks or create your own new set.
