External guides and other help for Turnitin and GradeMark

Official Turnitin LogoAs a member of staff, there are several things you may need to know how to do using Turnitin.  Most of these are covered in our own step-by-step guides.  If you’re looking for help on an aspect of Turnitin which you can’t find covered in our step-by-step guides, then you may find some of the external links and other guides listed below helpful.  We generally aim to have the most widely used features within Turnitin covered in our step-by-step guides, but the guides don’t provide full coverage of every single feature.  If you feel there is a common feature which isn’t covered, please raise a ticket with Serviceline so that we can take note of this.




PeerMark is a feature within Turnitin which allows tutors to create and manage assignments that allow students to read, review, and evaluate one or many papers submitted by their fellow coursemates.

Information and guides on using PeerMark are available from the TurnItIn website.

Turnitin also provide an overview of PeerMark.

This guide goes through adding a Peer Mark Assignment in Blackboard.
