How to access your Instructor Feedback and Rubric

  2. On the My Grades page that opens, navigate to and select the Title of the assignment you want to access feedback for. In our example, the assignment is called 'Assignment One' (highlighted in red below):

  4. This will open a new Turnitin Feedback Studio window.  On the right-hand side of the window is the Turnitin Feedback Studio menu. Select the Instructor Feedback button (speech bubble icon highlighted in red below):

  5. Your Instructor’s feedback (if supplied) will appear. Any general comments or voice recorded comments will also appear here.

    Please Note: Instructor Feedback is only released to students on the Post Date - which is set by the Instructor. Typically, when a student reports that they cannot see their feedback, it is because they are attempting to access their feedback before the Post Date.
