Tools to aid marking of assessments
Grademark is an additional feature of TurnitinUK, the plagiarism detection software currently used at Leeds. Assignments are uploaded to the system by students and then become available for marking online. Tutors can create their own rubrics (pre-defined comments) and reuse them on more than one assignment. Once the assignments are marked they can be made available for students to view electronically. Paper copies can also be printed. The system also has tools for recording and managing marks.
