Turnitin anonymous assignment grades disappearing

We have been made aware of an issue affecting Turnitin anonymous assignments where grades added in GradeMark are disappearing once the post date of the assignment has passed. Turnitin have informed us that this is a system wide issue which they are working on a resolution to.

In the meantime any individual instances where the issue has occurred can be resolved on a case by case basis by Turnitin. If you experience this issue please contact the ISS Helpdesk (helpdesk@leeds.ac.uk) providing the module code and assignment name.

Introducing: Rubrics

We are releasing a new feature this week – rubrics for Blackboard assessment items. See the Guide.

In the Leeds VLE, you’ll be able to associate rubrics with assessments, discussion boards and some quiz question types.

Watch a Blackboard video on Grading with rubrics, download and test out some shared rubrics from the Blackboard website, or head over to the Help website to read the guide on using rubrics in your module. Remember: online help is available within the rubrics tool – just click the ‘More Help’ links.
