Release marks and feedback from an Turnitin LTI assignment

To ensure marks and feedback are released:

  1. Ensure the Feedback Release Date is set in the past.
  2. Ensure the Grade Centre column is visible.
  3. Ensure the submission link is visible and available.

1. Ensure the Feedback Release Date is set in the past

The Feedback Release Date is the point at which Turnitin allows students to access their feedback and, for anonymously marked assignments, sends the marks from Feedback Studio to the Grade Centre.

  1. Click on the submission link and open the settings by clicking the cog wheel in the top right corner.Decorative
  2. DecorativeIf the Feedback Release Date is set to the future use the time and date selectors to bring the date and time forward to the current time and date.
  3. DecorativeClickSubmit to save your changes.

2. Ensure the Grade Centre column is visible

The assignment will not be visible to students in My Marks if the Grade Centre column for that assignment is hidden. It must be unhidden manually.

  1. DecorativeFind the assignment column in the Grade Centre. If you can see a red circle with a line through it, the column is hidden.
  2. DecorativeClick the arrow next to the submission title to open the column menu. From the drop-down menu select Hide from students (on/off).
  3. DecorativeCheck that the red circle with the line through has gone.

3. Ensure the submission link is visible

Student access to feedback is via the LTI submission link. If you have previously applied adaptive release to the submission link and the link remains hidden, students will see an Access Denied message when they attempt to view their feedback.

Do not use Learn’s Adaptive Release feature to make the feedback visible after a certain date

The Blackboard item’s Display After date cannot be set to be later than the assignment’s Due Date. Doing so will prevent staff and students from accessing the assignment – i.e. students won’t be able to see their feedback even after the Feedback Release date.

If you have done this, you will need to remove the Display After date to make the assignment available.
