How to view your Turnitin submission and feedback / score

This guide explains how to view a submission you have already made to a Turnitin assignment, and also how to view any feedback your tutor has left using GradeMark (the Turnitin grading tool).

Locate your Turnitin assignment link

Locate TurnitinUK Assignment Link

1. Login to Blackboard and browse to the the relevant course.  Once you are in your course, locate the content area where the submission link is, and click on it (for example, Assignments).

Click ‘View / Complete’

Click View / Complete

2. Locate the TurnitinUK Assignment link, which will look similar to the screenshot above, although will have a different name. Click on the link which says View / Complete.  This will take you into your assignment homepage for this specific assignment.  This is the same link you clicked on when you first submitted your assignment.  Clicking this link after you have submitted will allow you to check the submission you have made, and access related materials such as originality reports and feedback / grades.  The availability of originality reports and feedback / grades depends on whether your tutor is using these features.

3.  As you have already submitted to the assignment in question, you will see a range of different buttons depending on the whether the assignment due date has passed or not, and depending on how your tutor has setup the assignment.   Generally you will see one of the 3 button layouts shown in the image above:

a.  If your tutor has set the assignment up to allow re-submissions then you will see a blue re-submit button up until the due date.  You will also see a grey View button which allows you to check the file you have already submitted.  The download button (the downward pointing arrow) allows you to download both your file and your digital receipt.

b.  If your tutor has set the assignment up so that you are only allowed to submit once, then the Submit button will now be greyed out.  You can still use the grey View button to check the file you’ve submitted.  If you have accidentally submitted the wrong file and need to resubmit, you’ll need to contact the course tutor and ask them to remove your current attempt so that you can re-submit (this is done at their discretion).  The download button (the downward pointing arrow) allows you to download both your file and your digital receipt.

c.  In the final example, the Submit button is unavailable as submissions are no longer allowed, but the View button is now blue.  If you see a blue view button it means that your tutor has marked your work, or left feedback online using the GradeMark tool.  Clicking on the blue view button will allow you to see this feedback.  This button will only be blue if your tutor uses GradeMarkto provide a mark and feedback.  If you do not see a blue button and wish to find out your grade for the submission, you should contact your tutor to ask how they will communicate this information with you.

Viewing comments


4.  If your tutor has used GradeMark to add comments, these will appear on screen after you’ve loaded your paper by clicking on the blue ‘View’ button.  Comments will appear as blue speech marks or blue boxes.


5.  Hover over each comment to expand and view the full comment.

Viewing general comments


6.  You can view general comments by clicking on the ‘General Comments’ icon in the bottom rightof the screen.  This is usually selected by default when you open the GradeMark view for your submission.

Viewing rubric feedback


7.  Your tutor may also have used a rubric to provide feedback.  If so, you can click on the ‘Rubric’ icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to view your rubric scorecard.  There is a link to expand the rubric to see more detail.

Viewing your score


8.  If your tutor has marked your work and added a score using GradeMark, this will appear in the top right hand corner of the screen.  Note that scores which appear in GradeMark are usually provisional, and should not be considered your ‘final’ mark.
