What are the GradeMark and PeerMark features in Turnitin?

As of Fall 2016, Turnitin can be used exclusively through CCLE. For assistance using the service through CCLE, please contact your local CCLE support group or submit a ticket for assistance.

UCLA has added access to the GradeMark and PeerMark features in addition to the current OriginalityCheck from Turnitin. These features (collectively known as WriteCycle) are ready for immediate use.

GradeMark allows for completely paperless grading of submitted work. Professors and/or TAs are able to easily add provided comments or customized comments to papers which students are then able to access directly through Turnitin after the designated post date.
