This guide helps you access assessment feedback submitted to Turnitin.


Where is Feedback Located?

Feedback for your Turnitin assessment is provided in the same place as you submitted on Learning Space. The submission link is usually on the module page within the 'Assessment' section and Turnitin can be identified by the icon below:

When is Feedback Available?

If you tutor has uploaded feedback for your submission, it will become available to you after the post date.

You can easily check if feedback is available by checking if a grade has appeared in the 'Grade' column.
