Providing feedback when there is no file submission
Not all Turnitin assignment require a file submission in order to provide students with feedback via Feedback Studio. For example, you can use the Feedback Studio functionality to provide feedback to your students regarding a presentation or live performance done in a classroom.
Feedback may be provided via a Turnitin assignment if:
- A document is submitted that generates an originality report e.g. a PowerPoint, Excel, PDF or Word file.
- A document is submitted that does not generate an originality report e.g. a image file or scanned document.
- No document is submitted.
Even if a student did not submit a file to the Turnitin assignment drop box, you are still able to provide them with feedback.
To do this you need to:
- Click on the grey pencil icon next to the student's name in the Turnitin submission inbox.
- A popup message will appear, asking if you want to continue even though the student has not submitted an assignment, and warning a grading template will be created. Click 'OK'.
- The pencil icon will now appear as blue, and the submission title change to 'Grading template'.
- Click the blue pencil icon to open the grading template and add comments using the different options available.
