Time Constrained Assessments

Time constrained assessments (TCA’s) have been devised as a method of delivering online assessments in a student’s home.  TCA’s involve using timed release content on Blackboard, to administer an assignment to students with a time-bound Turnitin assessment point.  It is important that the assignment content and Turnitin submission point are released under controlled conditions, and that the Grade Centre is managed to allow for marking and feedback without early grade release.

To support you with design and implementation of TCA’s, we have provided guidance below. Designing TCA’s looks at the question types, timings and gives you some question stems to utilise when creating questions. The technical setup talks through the three steps to create a TCA within your module.
