Anonymous Marking

Anonymous marking (or Moodle's blind marking) allows you to grade student's work without having their names or other identifiable information revealed to you. In a situation where you are required to reveal a student's name, such as instances of suspected plagiarism, an audit trail will be created, accessible by your account administrator.

 

Anonymous marking is set at assignment level. To turn anonymous marking on for an assignment, you will find the option during assignment creation, or if there has been no submissions to the assignment, you are able to edit this option in the settings.

 

Warning: In order to create a Turnitin Assignment 2 with anonymous marking enabled, your Moodle administrator must have enabled their Turnitin Assignment 2 settings. Contact your administrator, if you are unable to enable anonymous marking in your Turnitin Direct Assignment.

Revealing a Student's Name

 

Once a student has submitted to an assignment, you may reveal their name, providing you have reason to do so. Revealing a students name is irreversible and will be audited to ensure that student information is revealed for an acceptable reason. Account administrators will receive notice of your anonymous marking deactivation.

 

1. In accessing the Submission Inbox, you will find that all student names are filled with a link titled Anonymous Marking Enabled. If for any reason you must reveal a student's name, click Anonymous Marking Enabled for the relevant submission.


 


2. A pop-up box will appear, asking you to provide a reason for unmasking your student's name. State your reason and click the Reveal button.
 

3. Your student's name will now be visible in the Student column of the Submission Inbox.
