Turnitin LTI: QuickMarks – Share Sets

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 Turnitin LTI: QuickMarks – Create a set.

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 QuickMarks Manager

To access the QuickMarks manager you will need to access a submitted paper in a Turnitin Assignment Inbox.

Open the submitted paper in the Feedback Studio, click on the QuickMarks blue tick box on the right-hand Instructor Feedback toolbar.
