Viewing and Grading a paper

The due date for the paper has passed: the time to grade!  In the Course Management section, go to the “Grade Center,” then the “Full Grade Center” and look for the column for the Turnitin assignment.  Click in the cells with the yellow exclamation mark and click on the hidden action button that will appear.  Select “Attempt plus date” to review and grade.  On the modify grade page click on the icon next to the User’s paper option.  You’ll arrive on the Feedback Studio page.  You’ll see your student’s paper on the left with 4 mini vertical toolbars on the right of it.  You may want to start with exploring the red toolbar; it opens the plagiarism checking panel and at the same time highlights possible plagiarized text in the student’s paper.  Next, click on the purple toolbar if you selected this tool when setting up the Turnitin assignment, which opens the spelling and grammar review panel and overlays the paper with possible areas for correction.  Your feedback work—as opposed to the software’s—comes in when you are going to use the tools in the blue mini toolbar.  Click the checkmark icon called QuickMark to see a collection of pre-defined feedback comments that can be dragged and dropped onto the student’s paper. --BEEP-- You can also insert your own home-made comments by just clicking into the paper and choosing one of the 3 tools in the pop-up panel. --BEEP-- The use of the remaining icons is pretty straightforward, but notice the help one click on the question mark away!

After you completing reviewing, fill in a grade on the upper right. Turnitin will save all your work automatically. When finished, use the arrows on both sides of the student name in the top panel to view and grade the paper of the next or previous student!  Yay!
