Reminder

As announced in February, Turnitin's similarity report will transition to a new interface.

The new interface - Feedback Studio - was enabled during recess week of AY16/17 Sem 2.

Since then, users have been able to toggle between Feedback Studio and Classic view.

On Tue 1 August, all users will be moved to Feedback Studio. Classic view will be disabled.

Turnitin's Instructor Guides contain videos, how-to guides, and quick tips to help educators get up and running with Feedback Studio in minutes.

The assignment creation workflow remains the same.
