Moodle Help & Support (Staff)
This refers to Moodle 3.4 from September 2018 onward.
Please note: To mark assignments submitted to a Turnitin dropbox in Moodle offline you need an iPad or an iPhone and the Turnitin app.
The app is NOT recommended where multiple markers are used to mark assignments.
This is because the app does not have any group filter functionality, and because it is possible to overwrite others' marking if careless.
Before using the iPad/iPhone
- On your desktop computer go to your module and click on the Turnitin assignment you wish to mark.
- Click on the blue pencil of any of the assignments to launch Feedback Studio.
- In Feedback Studio press the i button. This will launch a pop-up window.
- Enter your email address then enter it again to confirm.
- Important - Make sure that you have the most recent version of Feedback Studio installed on the iPad. (Update it from the App Store)
- You will receive a class link via email. From the email, select the 'Add class' button to add the class to the app.
Accessing submissions via your iPad/iPhone
- On your iPad ensure that you have the most recent version of the Turnitin app installed. Launch the app by clicking on the 'Add class' button from the email you were sent in the step outlined above.
- Tap the assignment you wish to access.
- You will be taken to the assignments area. To download the submissions tap on the blue downward facing arrows of each student's submission.
- Once they have downloaded the blue arrows will disappear.
- If you have downloaded the assignments then you do not need a network connection to mark. You can do this 'offline' if you wish.
- The marks and feedback will re-sync when you next have a network connection.
- Tap on the name of the student whose work you wish to mark to display the marking screen.
- The assignment will load allowing you to review it. Towards the top of the screen there are 3 icons.
1 - Tapping this icon will launch a new screen which will allow you to enter a mark.
2 - Tapping this icon will launch a new screen which will allow you to enter general feedback.
3 - Tapping this icon will open up the similarity score.
- If you wish to add a comment directly on the assignment you can do so by tapping on the screen where you would like the comment to appear.
- When you are ready to give a mark tap the --/100 icon towards the top-right and enter a score.
- If you want to add general comments tap the Summary Comment icon, this will then enable you to type comments in the Summary Comment text box.
- If you wanted to provide feedback via an audio recording tap the Voice comment icon. Please note that there is a three minute limit for audio comments.
The next time you have an internet connection the marks and feedback will sync to Moodle. If the scores do not appear then press the Refresh Submission link located within the Turnitin assignment in Moodle.
- The iPhone version follows the same instructions.
