(Last updated July 2016, video needs updating)

The following instructions tell you how to mark using Rubrics that have already been set up in a submission area.

Please ensure you use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome browsers (NOT Internet Explorer – it is too slow!)

A short video on how to locate papers and mark with rubrics is below (this is based on the dissertation, but will be accurate for all other pieces of work accessible to multiple markers), if you require more extensive instructions, these are located below the video.

  1. You should access the paper you wish to mark in the TII inbox (usually via: Course tools > TurnItInAssignment by Group > Choose the Assignments > choose your name > Click the paper title)
  2. You can now view the Similarity layer (plagiarism checker) and Grading layer (to annotate the work and mark the rubric) using the icons down the left hand side. To complete marking, you must ensure that the “Grading” layer is highlighted in blue. You can activate the layer by clicking on the layer icon at the top of the Grading icon stack, or by clicking the layers icon at the very top of the icon set and ticking the check box for grading.
