Feedback Studio is one of the University’s tools for marking and grading student’s work. It is integrated with Turnitin and enables you to mark and annotate assignments and open book exams, leave typed or audio feedback and grade work according to a rubric.
Accessibility and inclusivity
The assessing work and giving feedback page of the Inclusive teaching section of the University website provides general advice on how you can be more inclusive in assessing student work and giving feedback.
