|Birkbeck||Quiz, Moodle Assignment, Turnitin Assignment, Forum, CP Journal/Blog||Quiz, Moodle Assignment, Turnitin Assignment, Forum, CP Journal/Blog||Turnitin Assignment for vast majority, Moodle Assignment also used||Occasional, but possibly increasing||Online marking in Turnitin Grademark (including ipad app) is quite common. Also some use of track changes in Word||Turnitin Grademark use is widespread||Not really||Variety of practices across the college. Turnitin use for generating OR is just about standard but practice differs in terms of marking online or not, marking anonymously or not, allowing students to see their OR or not, allowing resubmissions and/or late submissions. |
* Adopted Turnitin at an early stage, originally as a stand-alone, then integrated with Blackboard and electronic marking.
* Policies are decided at a departmental level e.g. number of times that students can self-check.
* Students allowed to self-check.
* Academics look at Turnitin reports.
* Needs a lot of admin support.

|IOE||Moodle assignment (drafts for summative assessment), Forums, web conference presentations/debates. Specialist modules film student practice or provide email feedback to student artifacts (eg films, blogs, wikis, etc)||Mostly 5k end-of-module essays at Masters level, sometimes split into multiple parts, occasionally populating a portfolio of work. Alternative assessment must be the equivalent of a 5k essay.||Submission via Moodle assignment, from 2015/16: Submission via Turnitin Moodle plugin.||Only specialist modules: self-made films, animations, audio recordings.||Paper based marking prevails. Offline but on-screen marking on desktops/laptops on the increase, limited online marking (eg Turnitin GradeMark) or marking on tablets by individuals.||Normally summative comments for summative assessment, often on a MS Word pro forma. Feedback is now required to be returned via Moodle Assignment, but use of email for returning feedback is still widespread.||Very limited use.||• There is mixed practice across programmes/modules, but Turnitin use will become the norm in 2015/16.|
• Turnitin links set up at the start of the course so students can familiarise themselves with Turnitin and submit anytime and as many times as they wish up until the deadline.
• Some courses deliver face to face training sessions with the students on Moodle and Turnitin.
• 2015/16: Programmes are advised to allow students to use Turnitin as a formative tool to develop their writing practice while drafting their assignments.
• 2015/16: Turnitin will be used for plagiarism check at the summative stage.
• Students encouraged to self-check - reports should be helping students to empower them rather than use it to catch out students who are plagiarising.
• High number of international students so requirement to provide additional support. A lot of cases to do with incorrect referencing so this would suggest that more was needed to be done to support students in their writing and familiarisation with the referencing system.
|ULCC developed a cross-course feedback report for IOE. The development is now picked up by UCL in a larger context. The first phase (report available to students) is expected to roll out institution-wide in November 2015, full availability of report and further tracking functionality is scheduled for summer 2016. |
An increasing number of modules uses Moodle completion tracking.
|Built into some formative activity designs. Normally only standard Moodle tools are used (eg forums, Collaborate, workshop). Planned PeerMark use in 2015/16.||Integration project is underway, but a constant link between student records and Moodle or TII will not be developed. Such a link is not desirable, as the official student record might differ, as it is agreed by Exam board.||Very limited use. Up to the tutor to organise themselves.|
|LSHTM||Moodle Quiz, Assignment, Forum, Glossary, and Lesson activities currently in use, in addition to formative activities set up within Collaborate sessions delivered to the DL programme.||F2F: none at present. DL: online submission of final project work via a bespoke system (Assessment Management System; AMS), with marks and feedback also delivered in this way.||F2F: small scale pilots of submission of formative essays via Moodle Assignment tool. DL: online submission of final project work via AMS.||N/A||F2F: Small scale pilot of marks delivery via Moodle Assignment tool, but no online marking practice as yet. DL: marking practices developed within teaching teams; marks delivered via AMS.||F2F: Small scale pilot of feedback delivery via Moodle Assignment tool, generally with file upload of MS Word pro forma. DL: feedback delivered via AMS.||N/A||A sample of papers are submitted to Turnitin via the Submit.ac.uk interface by F2F course administrators and on behalf of students. Students have no access to Turnitin otherwise. Moodle integration has now been enabled and a proposal for students to be given access to it has been submitted to Taught Course Directors. Awaiting further instruction.||N/A||N/A||N/A||Staff have access to PollEverywhere, with staff having begun piloting tool in winter term 2014. Used to gauge understanding and gather feedback.|
|RVC||Turnitin Grademark, Learn quizzes - MCQs, CALs (more lengthy quizzes e.g. problem-solving case studies), Dragster anatomy quizzes, Flash simulations||Very little used - a couple of open-book Learn quizzes are used for summative assessment in CPD||OCM will cater for parts of this. Selected assignements being submitted through OCM and marked online. Some Summative pieces of work still goes through TII, with grademark being used in some instances (online marking). Paper copies is still required in some instances and and marking is done on the paper itself.||N/A||Grademark for formative assessment, OCM used when double blind, external reviewed and sample marking is required.||Grademark for formative assessment. OCM used when marked, annotated assignments are required online||N/A||• Use Turnitin extensively for summative assessment for plagiarism detection only - college policy that all summative assessments must be put through Turnitin. Two major research projects throughout the major undergraduate course, which rely heavily on Turnitin, and now OCM.|
• Dedicated session before the Turnitin submission takes place, explaining about academic writing skills and use of Turnitin.
• Students encouraged by tutors to look at their originality reports. Originality reports are accessible to all students, and we have several “draft” submission areas set up where students are encouraged to submit draft copies of their work.
|Not grades, but building on formative feedback for a summative piece of work is tracked online for RP2||Moodle Workshop used for peer assessment in a single case. Rarely used, students don't appreciate peer feedback||Not appropriate. Manual input of marks is done by the exams office.||Turning Point, used very little. Some academics experienced technical problems and given up. A couple of academics persisted and use it very effectively. Will review tools including mobile voting ahead of summer 2015.|
|SOAS||Practice essays and submission of slides from presentations. Not very widespread||All essays are submitted via Turnitin. This comprises of the bulk of non-exam assessment at SOAS||All essays are submitted via Turnitin. This comprises of the bulk of non-exam assessment at SOAS||Podcast feeds used in some language courses for formative assessment||All essays submitted via Turnitin are marked online||All assignments submitted via Turnitin are expected to have general feedback added to the comments section. Frequently in line comments are used as well||Occasionally used in language classes via Campus pack podcast feeds||• Assignment submission and marking are done via Turnitin - links are usually available to the students two weeks before the due date. |
• Students can submit as many times as they wish before due date to view report and self-check their work.
• A guide is available on the BLE to help them understand how to use Turnitin and how to interpret the report.
|Data from UNITe is used to generate automatically Turnitin assignments for essay submissions. Grades are passed from the Moodle gradebook back to Turnitin using a locally installed plugin|
|UCL||Moodle quizzes, Turnitin GradeMark, Moodle Workshops||Moodle quizzes for exams and assessed low stakes uninvigilated quizzes, Turnitin and Moodle used for assessment submission and in some cases marking and feedback too. |
Mahara, Wordpress, Blogger increasingly used.
|Moodle Assignments, Turnitin Assignments and Moodle Workshop (latter little used since wariness re credit-bearing peer marking).||Mahara. Moodle Assignments linking to YouTube or uploaded video file. Moodle forums with YouTube link embedded (I think). Coming soon: media hosting service for students.||Moodle Assignment, Turnitin GradeMark and Moodle Workshop||Moodle Assignment, Turnitin GradeMark and Moodle workshop||Moodle Assignment feedback file upload (but not widespread use)||Turnitin Direct plugin v1 and v2. GradeMark used widely in some departments. Widespread perception of plagiarism deterence. Plagiarism detection - certainly, but not sure how used. Where Moodle Assignments are used for offline marking, then sometimes students are asked to submit their assignment twice - once for 'plagiairism checking' to Turnitin and then to a Moodle Assignment.||My Feedback pilot - a Moodle plugin which shows feedback and grades across courses in Moodle.|
Completion tracking enabled in some places.
|Moodle Workshop usage is spreading.|
PeerWise being used in some departments. We are making forays into WebPA.
|we've brought in the student number into Moodle from our student record system and added this to the gradebook export in an order which makes it easier to upload grades into the student record system. There is concern about automating this, since all grades in Moodle are strictly provisional (the finalised grade is in the student record system). Consequently changed grades from the external examiner process are not entered back in toi Moodle, but changed in a spreadsheet and uploaded directly to the student record system.||Turning point clickers available for loan in sets of up to 500. our 3 largest lecture theatres have these installed at each seat. Engineering have Turning Point licenses for mobiles. There is a small trial of Ombea running, but not much uptake. However increasing signed of localised use of Socrative, PollEv and more with students' own devices. For smaller cohorts, everyone we've shown Plickers is very excited.|
