An enhanced interface for instructors offers streamlined grading on and-offline. Click to Tweet.
More than ever, students use mobile devices to manage their assignments. With the Feedback Studio app for iPad, institutions can ensure that students are not only able to complete and submit assignments on their iPad, but they also have immediate access to their instructors’ comments, feedback, and grades where and when they need it.
Immediate access to feedback from instructors helps students develop their writing skills. Like many students today, Jacinta Lujano, who is attending Naval Postgraduate School, is always pressed for time. “Feedback Studio for iPad makes it really simple to submit my writings and to get on-the-go feedback,” said Lujano. “It’s really simple and intuitive to use, too. I love it.”
College instructors and secondary grade teachers can use the app to give feedback and make comments on student papers while they are on the go. The interface is cleaner and the process to view accounts and classes is simplified. “I can grade papers anywhere I want on my tablet with the Turnitin Feedback Studio app,” said Cheryl Ashbaugh, communications professor at Robert Morris University. “Not having to carry so much around with me has been great for my back!”
Key features include:
- Free App for Students: Students can now submit and view assignments from their iPad and then view Similarity Reports, instructor feedback, and grades.
- Updated Interface: An updated interface for instructors makes feedback easier to give and review with cleaner, clutter-free screens.
- Grade Offline: Assignments can by synced between iPad app and desktop grading on or off-line.
