Where is Feedback Located?
Feedback for assignments is provided in the same place as you submitted on Learning Space, in the 'Assessment' section of the module area.
When is Feedback available?
If your tutor has uploaded feedback for your submission, they should have notified you that it is available. If it is more than 4 working weeks after the submission date, you can contact then to ask when it will be available.
You can easily check if feedback is available by checking the status of your submission. If the status is "Released", then feedback is available.
Accessing Feedback (most assessments)
For most assignments, feedback is likely to be in the form of a Word document or a PDF. Go to where you submitted your work and scroll down to the bottom of the page. You will see something like the below. Don't just look at the grade! Open the attached file to find out how and why you were given that grade.
Accessing Feedback (some essays and dissertations)
Some subject areas, instead of uploading a document as feedback, use "TurnitIn Grade Mark". There are three different types of feedback here; overall comments, the rubric and in-line comments.
Where an essay has been put through Turnitin plagiarisn detection, shortly after submission, extra icons will appear underneath your submitted file, indicating an originality score (in the image below shown as 99% because the work was plagiarised).
To access feedback, click the pencil icon.
When Grade Mark opens, the first thing you see will be the plagiarism similarity report.
To make reading your feedback easier, you should temporarily disable the similarity report by clicking the red segment on the tool bar.
The overall comments can be accessed by clicking the white speech bubble icon with the blue background. This should open automatically in Turnitin studio.
This contains the overall feedback for the assignment and could include a voice comment as well a a text comment.
The rubric can be viewed by clicking 'View Rubric' button as shown in the instructor feedback screen. To access instructor feedback, click on the comments button in the toolbar which can be identified as the button with a white speech bubble on a blue background.
A rubric compares aspects of your assignment against the module's learning outcomes. Highlighted in blue are at what level you performed against each learning outcome.
Note: Not all Turnitin submissions use a rubric and this may not appear for you.
In-line comments may appear throughout your assignment and can be identified by the speech bubble icon or by the "Citation Needed" icon which features white text on a blue background.
Clicking on either of these icons reveal more information from your tutor.
How to download Feedback
Click the download icon which can be identified as a grey arrow pointing downwards with a line underneath it.
Finally from the download options, click 'Current View' to start the download.
