Once your lecturer has marked your assignment in Turnitin and released the grades and feedback (this happens once the Post Date has passed), you will be able to view both. 

How to view grade and feedback

NOTE: If you are downloading Turnitin feedback from a Moodle assignment, go into your assignment and click on the blue pencil and follow these steps from step 3

If it is a Turnitin Assignment:

     1.   Click on the Turnitin assignment submission box.

2.    This will load the Turnitin assignment page. At the bottom you will see your assignment details and within the Grade column your grade will appear. 


3.   To see what feedback the marker has given you click on the blue pencil icon. 

4.    A new browser tab will open and load up Feedback Studio which will contain your assignment and the feedback. You may see comments written on your assignment

The general feedback and further detailed feedback (this is often in a format called a rubric or grading form, if your marker uses one) is in the ‘Instructor Feedback’ panel to the right of the screen (highlighted in red in the image below).

To view comments entered into a rubric or grading form  you need to click on the 'View Rubric' button (See View detailed feedback below.) 

Comments are also shown inline in the paper.

Below this image is a breakdown of each button in the menu.

Select the Current View option.

This will then prompt a PDF to be downloaded from Turnitin of your assignment with the feedback and mark.
