Add marks and overall feedback in Turnitin

What is it?

In addition to providing in-text comments, you can also enter marks and overall feedback for the submission.

Both the feedback and marks are released to students automatically based on the “Feedback release date” for the assignment, and students will not see any marks or feedback before this date has passed.
