Visual indicator that 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 re-usable comments that can be added onto a student’s paper to provide feedback. For more details, take a look at our guide on “Creating QuickMark Sets”.

QuickMarks are personal to each individual marker. To make them available for another marker to use, you need to export a Set from your library in the QuickMark Manager and send it to the other person, who can then import it into their own library.

Accessing the QuickMark Manager

Access the QuickMarks via any submitted paper by clicking on the QuickMarks blue tick box on the right-hand Instructor Feedback toolbar.
