ARCHIVED: In Turnitin, what is GradeMark?

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.

Turnitin's GradeMark tool facilitates online marking of student writing. At Indiana University, most of the GradeMark options are available through Canvas and Oncourse, as well as directly from Turnitin.

Note: In Oncourse, students will not be able to view comments until after the due date for the assignment; in Canvas, they do not need to wait to see them. For more about the integration between Turnitin and Oncourse, see ARCHIVED: Oncourse Turnitin integration: Overview.

GradeMark offers the following features:

  • Pre-defined features:
    • Drag-and-drop battery of pre-defined tags, such as "comma splice" or "weak transition"
    • Definition and discussion, with examples, for each of these pre-defined error tags
  • Instructor-designed features:
    • Insert written comments into the student paper
    • Record voice comments (up to three minutes)
    • Customize tags to drag and drop
    • Create custom definitions and discussions for tags
    • Design a customized rubric for each assignment (not available in Oncourse)

Note: Canvas also allows for some on-screen commenting on student work using the Crocodoc interface in SpeedGrader; see How do I use Crocodoc in the SpeedGrader?

Instructors can get help using technology in their teaching at the teaching and learning centers on each campus.
