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 offline.
