Anonymous Marking

With anonymous marking, your student's name, and any other identifiable information is masked from you, their instructor. If at any point during marking you identify a problem with a submission, you have the ability to reveal the student's name from the Assignment Inbox. When you reveal a student's name an audit trail will be created. You will be required to enter a reason for unveiling a student's name in order for any issues to be properly investigated.

 

Note: This setting is permanent. If you disable anonymous marking for a student, you will be unable to reactivate it for that student during that assignment.

 

Note: For assignments with Anonymous Marking enabled, the post date determines when grades are posted to the Blackboard Grade Center and when the author names are made available. Otherwise, in Blackboard, the post date relates to the availability of GradeMark papers only and has no bearing on when grades are posted to the Blackboard Grade Center.

Enabling Anonymous Marking

 

Anonymous marking is set at assignment level. Please note that for you to enable anonymous marking as an instructor, your administrator must have enabled this option too on your institution's account. If there is no option available, please contact your administrator to request that this is activated.

 

You can enable anonymous marking while creating an assignment or by editing an assignment, on the basis that no submissions have been made to the assignment already.
