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.
