Deliver better student outcomes with Turnitin Feedback Studio

October 2, 2019 Chris Callaghan

Feedback Studio is designed to save
teachers hours of work by making the feedback process faster, easier, and more
consistent. With tools that support timely feedback and prevent plagiarism,
Feedback Studio’s interactive platform delivers provable educational outcomes.
It is the only comprehensive solution that simultaneously provides effective
feedback, streamlined grading, and promotes academic integrity.

1. It saves teachers’ time

Feedback Studio caters to the fast-paced
teacher lifestyle. With its flexible commenting and grading tools, it is able
to reduce marking time by 38%. It allows teachers to leave both long and
short-form text comments, as well as voice comments for a more personalised
touch. With reusable QuickMarks and custom rubrics, the same grading and
criteria can be applied across assignments and shared between teachers. This
helps teachers to consistently evaluate and set their students up for success
in school and beyond.

2. It prevents plagiarism

Feedback Studio is not your average plagiarism
checker. It checks student work against the world’s most comprehensive
collection of content to identify potential cases of plagiarism. Turnitin’s
database covers 70 billion current and archived web pages, over 1 billion
student submissions, and 69 million scholarly journals. Feedback Studio’s
Similarity Report provides teachers with reliable text matches to check for
plagiarism. In 2012, Edexcel used Turnitin to find 122 cases of plagiarism,
including 26 at GCSE level. It is vital that secondary schools teach their
students the value of academic integrity to reduce potential institutional
risk.

3. It improves student writing

Feedback Studio is an incentive to support
students with their academic writing, including citation and paraphrasing. With
Feedback Studio’s automated grammar checking, draft, revision, and peer review
capability, teachers have the tools to show their students that writing is a
process. “The more students write, the more confident they will feel in their
abilities,” observes a Feedback Studio user, “and the more feedback they
receive, the more they will improve.” By using Feedback Studio as part of a
formative approach to giving feedback to their students, teachers can
effectively guide and support student learning and achievement.

4. It fits in with your processes

You don’t have to choose between your
learning management system and Feedback Studio. You can have both. Feedback
Studio partners with rich learning applications to provide schools with an
all-in-one experience inside their LTI-compliant learning system. With Feedback
Studio, you can expect a quick and hassle-free setup, allowing teachers to jump
straight in without the need for technical expertise. Feedback Studio also
offers deeper integrations with Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, and dozens of other
learning management systems.

5. It shows measurable student
progress

Feedback Studio helps schools to measure
student success at scale. Teachers can track and analyse student progress to
inform classroom instruction and even support strategic initiatives throughout
a school. Feedback Studio offers account administrators with the tools to view
feedback, submission and similarity statistics across a school or subject
department in order to effectively determine which classes require extra
support.
