TFS & E:Vision: manage feedback & marks


Administrator guide: the process for releasing (or witholding) student feedback in Turnitin Feedback Studio (TFS) and marks on E:Vision

Releasing feedback & marks

Overview of process

Once the marking/moderation staff have confirmed that marking is complete, feedback has been given and final marks have been agreed, admin staff take over again to release feedback and marks to students.

The suggested process for this is:

        5. E:Vision: Upload marks
        6. Ready for release

Note: There are also considerations for managing extensions and late submissions.

In-depth guide

A detailed walk through of this process is given in our guide to releasing feedback and marks in TFS [Google Doc].

This is aimed at workflows using the Assessment Tracker, but the same process can be used without the Tracker.

Withholding feedback and marks

In some situations, you might need or want to withold marks and feedback for particular students after they are released for the rest of the cohort. For example:

  • marking is not yet complete
  • the student is being investigated for academic misconduct

See our guide to Withholding feedback and marks entered into TurnItIn [Google Doc] for details of:

  • when this might be an appropriate action
  • moving the work to a new submission point
  • removing marks and feedback from the original submission point.
