Grading for 2022

The requirement that 50% of the assessment in stage 1 courses must occur in invigilated settings is waived.

Course Directors are asked to ensure that course information makes it clear to students if the course has ‘pass requirements’, i.e., assessment components (including the final examination), and/or standards that must be met in order for students to pass the course) and the implications for final course grades if these requirements are not met e.g., DNC and DNS grades.

Turnitin LTI – External tool settings for marking assignments

If staff have used the Turnitin External Tool (LTI) rather than Turnitin’s Plagiarism Review, there are some additional settings that you should consider to avoid releasing marks before the final grades are allowed to be published to students.

  • Muting a Turnitin assignment in the Canvas Gradebook will only prevent marks from being released to students on Canvas.
  • Marks and feedback given on Turnitin will be visible to students unless staff has set a “Feedback release date” in the assignment’s Turnitin settings.
  • Staff would need to check and set the “Feedback release date” – exam marks are usually officially released two weeks after the end of the last examination.
