Colored Highlights in GradeMark

Turnitin recently added the ability to add colored highlights with comments to student papers in GradeMark. Instead of only a plain yellow highlighter, you can now choose from five colors—blue, green, yellow, pink, and purple.

 

After you highlight a passage, click on the highlight to add a comment bubble, or click on a QuickMark comment in the sidebar to associate the QuickMark to the highlight.

One great way to use these various highlights is to color-code your feedback—for example, blue may be constructive feedback, green can be positive reinforcement, yellow can be be comments on composition, pink may be comments on format, and purple can be comments on grammar.
