Using GradeMark with a Dropbox

Originality Check

If Originality Check is enabled, you can use the GradeMark functionality to add comments, insert inline text, and highlight sections in file submissions directly from the Dropbox tool.

Using GradeMark for dropbox submissions

On the Turnitin tab, enable Originality Check. When you do this, the GradeMark functionality is automatically enabled.

NOTE: Instructors can enter grades via GradeMark one day after the dropbox folder due date has passed. You must create due dates in a dropbox folder's Restrictions tab to make GradeMark grades available to students.

Open a dropbox submission in GradeMark

  1. On the Folder Submissions page, click Evaluate for the student.
  2. On the left hand side of the screen, click the GradeMark. The GradeMark report opens in a new window. (You can also click on the Originality Report icon.)
  3. Add comments, highlight text, save, and print your GradeMark report using the available tools in the menu bar.

TIP For more detailed help with GradeMark functionality, click the Help menu item on the report.
