Marking work submitted online

This article outlines the different methods for adding grades and feedback

This article provides instructions on how to add marks and feedback for student work that was submitted online.

This article explains how to use the inline grading tool (Crocodoc) for annotating submissions online, and considerations for its use.

The Advanced Assignment Tool (aka Batch Upload Tool) in Blackboard enables you to batch upload feedback file attachments to the Grade Centre for assignments submitted online.

The Blackboard Marks and Feedback (‘Batch Upload’) tool enables the bulk upload of feedback file attachments and marks generated electronically outside of Blackboard into the Grade Centre for an assignment submitted online. There are a series of considerations and possible risks associated with the Marks and Feedback tool that you should familiarise yourself with before undertaking the actual process.

Please note: these instructions are relevant to student work submitted to Blackboard Assignment submission points. Instructors can download students work in two ways, either individually or as a bulk download which will create a packaged ZIP file containing the student assignments

Hiding grade columns enables you to add marks and feedback to the Grade Centre without students seeing this information until a time you wish to release them.

Due to students' work being lost irretrievably, we have decided to remove the function to clear a students' attempt/ submission. 

There may still be times when students have submitted the wrong file, but as we are now recommending that submission points should allow unlimited attempts for students, there is no need to clear the attempt. However, there is still the option to ignore the attempt. This allows for the instructor to effectively disregard that particular attempt, without the risk of losing any work.

The 'print to mark' service is offered to allow for offline marking of scripts that have been submitted electronically via Blackboard, prior to the provision of electronic feedback.

Work submitted online to Blackboard can be marked anonymously using the ‘Grade with Usernames Hidden’ option

Where feedback and marks are entered in to a grade column for an assignment that is visible to students but you wish the information to remain hidden, then use the Save Draft option. This will keep any feedback and marks entered hidden to those students, while the remaining students can access their feedback and marks as usual. Once you are ready to release the feedback and marks to those individual students, you simply update the ‘draft’ status to submit

You can bulk upload student papers submitted from Blackboard to Turnitin

There are benefits for both staff and students when video and audio feedback files are uploaded to Medial, rather than attached directly to Blackboard:
