Edsby is a comprehensive learning management and analytics system for K-12 school districts, states/provinces, and for entire countries. Teachers whose jurisdictions have adopted Edsby can now assess assignments submitted electronically into Edsby using Turnitin Feedback Studio without leaving the Edsby environment. Results from Turnitin can automatically appear in Edsby gradebooks, can be shared with students and parents at teachers’ discretion and can help teachers determine grades at reporting time.

“Turnitin Feedback Studio is one of the applications teachers ask for most inside Edsby,” said John Myers, Edsby Co-Founder and President. “We’re pleased to now be able to point to this connection between our two services.”

“Turnitin Feedback Studio provides comprehensive feedback, grading, and plagiarism checking features,” said Valerie Schreiner, Turnitin SVP Business & Corporate Development. “Adding this functionality to Edsby’s already robust feature set is a natural pairing, and we look forward to the benefits this partnership brings to Turnitin and Edsby customers.”

Edsby educators seeking to use Turnitin should contact their Edsby administrator about entering their jurisdiction or district’s Turnitin credentials to enable the connection if they have an active Turnitin subscription.
