Blackboard (Faculty) - Turnitin Assignments: Access and Grade Student Submissions

This document provides an overview of how to access and grade student submissions through Turnitin or Blackboard.

Turnitin Feedback Studio is an online tool that is used for grading papers, presentations, and other student work. Work submitted through Turnitin can be marked up with Feedback Studio using standard as well as customized grading marks. While Feedback Studio itself does not analyze or identify spelling, grammatical, or citation style errors, if e-rater has been enabled during the Turnitin assignment creation process, e-rater will analyze spelling and grammar.

Feedback Studio can be utilized within a Blackboard course. It does not have to be used in conjunction with the Turnitin originality reporting capability.

Instructors must first set up a Turnitin assignment before using Feedback Studio features. Once assignments have been submitted, papers can then be graded using Feedback Studio. See the Create a Turnitin Assignment knowledge base article for detailed instructions regarding how to set up a Turnitin assignment.

  1. Go to the assignment link in the coursework/content area or folder. Click on the assignment link. The Turnitin Assignment Inbox will open.
