Turnitin Feedback Studio has been reimagined from front to back with an emphasis on providing instructors tools to give relevant feedback that students will understand and learn from, while also supporting academic integrity. "Worldwide, instructors rely on Turnitin for preventing plagiarism in student writing. Turnitin Feedback Studio goes a step further in helping students become better writers by giving instructors a single place to quickly provide direct, actionable feedback on all aspects of student work," said Will Murray, chief product officer at Turnitin.

Feedback Studio offers:

  • Great feedback, fast. Re-designed user interface brings plagiarism prevention, feedback, and grading into a unified view that helps educators mark faster while making it easier for students to engage with their instructors' comments.
  • Anytime, anywhere learning. Responsive design works on PCs, tablets, and smartphones to support students and instructors wherever they are and however they work.
  • Accessibility improvements. Major upgrades make Turnitin Feedback Studio more usable by all students, moving closer to compliance with WCAG 2.0 AA Standards for web accessibility.
  • Unparalleled content coverage. Enhanced technology intelligently and rapidly crawls and indexes the most relevant and up-to-date content on the Web, including content hidden behind Javascript, expanding Turnitin's vast content database in support of academic integrity.

"Turnitin Feedback Studio is a game changer for giving feedback and for the teaching and grading of writing," said Christopher Swann, English Department Chair at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School. "Turnitin Feedback Studio not only makes it easier for teachers to do their job, it makes it easier for students to see what they're doing well and what they can improve on in terms of their writing."

In addition to Feedback Studio, Turnitin offers two complementary products: Turnitin Revision Assistant, which provides instant feedback on student writing, and Turnitin Scoring Engine, which provides automated assessment of student writing.

Turnitin Feedback Studio will be made available to all current Turnitin users and is available on a per-student, annual subscription basis to new customers.
