Overview

GradeMark is a commenting tool instructors may use when grading papers in Desire2Learn. The tool is offered through Turnitin, a plagiarism protection tool used with Dropbox submissions. The instructions below demonstrate how to view GradeMark feedback provided by your instructor.

*Note: If you know that your instructor is using GradeMark, yet you do not see the View Originality Report icon shown in step 3 below, ask them to Allow submitters to see Originality Reports.

Step

Log into your course and in the Assessments drop-down menu, select Dropbox.

Step

Click the number that appears in the Submissions column for the assignment you’d like to review.

Step

Click the Turnitin Similarity icon (displays a percentage and color as an indication of similarity index).

Step

Hover your mouse and click on Markups to view them in detail. You can toggle between Instructor Feedback and your Match Overview using the navigation tabs on the right-hand side.

Step

If you would like to print or save your submission with the feedback, click the Download button on the bottom right of the viewer. A new window will appear with three options.

  • Current View will begin a download of the file with comments intact
  • Originally Submitted File will begin a download of the file without any markup.

Open the downloaded file in a PDF compatible program. Select Print... from the File menu.

Step

Close your window/tab when finished.
