Known Issue: Students accessing Turnitin Feedback

Students accessing Turnitin Feedback Studio for the first time may experience difficulties accessing assignment feedback from the My Grades link. The current solution is for the student to access the Turnitin Submission link (View/Complete), then click on the View button. Once completed, feedback will be accessible via My Grades normally.
