Select the Turnitin PeerMark manager icon from the Tools area.
In the PeerMark manager select the 'plus sign' to create a PeerMark assignment.
Fill in the details for your assessment.
Use the 'Additional Settings' menu to choose how papers are released for review, then click Save & Continue.
Use the PeerMark Questions tab to create or add questions for student reviewers. You can save your questions to the library to use again.
Use the Distribution tab to pair, unpair or exclude students from the review process.
To access and grade PeerMark assignments:
Open the Turnitin assignment.
Launch the PeerMark review icon from the Tools area.
You will now see your assignment inbox area with an overview of all student submissions. Use this overview to see which students have completed their peer reviews, view and grade the reviews online, download assignments and reviews for offline marking, and to write your own reviews.
