Global Anonymous Marking

Anonymous marking is a system of assessment where a student's name and any other identifiable information is unavailable to instructors.


If at any point during marking an instructor identifies collusion in a paper, they have the ability to reveal the student's name. Consequently, an audit trail will be created, where you, as an administrator, will receive a notification for this. You will also receive an instructor's reason for unveiling a student's name in order for any issues to be properly investigated.

Enabling Anonymous Marking on an Account


1. From the main Accounts homepage, select the cog icon from within the Edit column for the account you wish to enable anonymous marking. Click Edit account settings
