Welcome to the Turnitin / Grademark support blog.

Please note: This summer, Turnitin are combining their Grademark and originality-checking features and rebranding them as “ Feedback Studio”. Feedback Studio will retain all of the tools that were previously available within Grademark/Turnitin but has been enhanced to provide give a simpler and more responsive experience when checking originality and marking online. If you are already familiar with Grademark there will be very little feature change. The tools will still be accessed in the same way and there will be no changes to setting up assignments or to the assignments inbox. Please take a look at the live DEMO.

We are currently working on updating this resource.

This is a resource produced specifically for teaching and professional services staff to answer questions around the technicalities of using Turnitin and Grademark. This is not a resource for understanding assessment regulations at Cardiff University.
