Marking Anonymous Submissions by Group on Turnitin
This helpsheet outlines how to access and mark anonymous submissions by group on Turnitin.
When setting up the module:
- Ensure that the Turnitin submission has been set up on the module site and that the ‘anonymous submission’ option has been selected.
- Ensure that the groups of students have been set up on the module site, this can be done by sending a list of the groups (with student IDs under each group name) to firstname.lastname@example.org or your local Digital Education Developer.
To access and mark submissions by group:
- Access the module site on which you want to mark, from your ‘My Sites’ box on Blackboard.
- Ensure that ‘Edit Mode’ is turned on within the Module Site:
- Look to the left-hand side menu and scroll to the bottom, selecting and opening ‘Site Tools’ menu:
- Select ‘Turnitin Assignments by Group’:
- Select the name of the assignment you wish to mark:
- Use the dropdown menu to select the group you wish to mark.
- Click ‘Go’ after you have selected your group:
- You will now see a list of students anonymous submissions, but only for your set group:
Note: These submissions will only be anonymous if the student doesn’t enter their name into the submission title box or somewhere into the paper. Please follow school level guidance to avoid this occurrence.
- To open a paper just click the link within the ‘Title’ column. The paper will open on Turnitin for marking in the usual way.
- Continue to mark by following steps 3-9 to select other students in your group.
