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.
