Assessment Structure

Online submission is more than setting up a submission point on Blackboard. It is important to give the student the correct and relevant information regarding the assessment, and where to submit. Click here to access a guide for students on how to submit online.

Here is a good example of how to structure the assessment information within an assessment tab.


As you can see, the module leader has used folders to separate the submission points and assignment information. This is an effective way to prevent student confusion and prevent issues on the day of the assignment hand in. Inside the folder there are two submission points, a blackboard submission and Turnitin. It is university policy for levels 3, 4 and 7 to have both these submission points. Turnitin is important to check for plagiarism, while the blackboard submission is necessary for online marking and feedback. The picture below  displays the look of both submission points. You can access the templates for your own blackboard site here.
