Please note that CSU Chico will turn off access to Turnitin PeerMark on January 5, 2017.
Keep in mind, it is only PeerMark that is being turned off; Turnitin Originality Reports and GradeMark are still available.
According to the Turnitin Product Roadmap, they are “no longer making any changes” to the current PeerMark product. Their long term goal is to “replace PeerMark with a new tool that instructors and students can use with ease.”
Please contact a Technology and Learning Program consultant to discuss other peer review options including:
- Google Docs
- ePortfolio tools
- Blackboard Learn’s Self & Peer Review tool
- Other open source/web solutions
While these may not have the same level of integration with Blackboard Learn, they are worth exploring.
Thank you for your understanding and willingness to explore other options. And of course, if you have a favorite tool you want to share with us, we welcome your input.
