Canvas Assignments

Online assessment can be set up in your module sites using the Canvas assignment functionality. We use SpeedGrader to mark online. SpeedGrader makes it easy to evaluate individual student assignments and group assignments quickly.

The university has also built in Marker Allocation functionality. Marker allocation is an optional tool. It is usually used by large marking teams, or if markers are required to mark particular students’ work anonymously.

Work that has been marked online, can also be internally moderated online, using the moderation tool. Online moderation should be completed after all marking has been completed. Any member of staff registered onto the module can act as the moderator. Both Marker Allocation and Moderation tool need VPN (links to external site) to be switched on.
