Aston guidance for Staff

Aston specific guides on the use or application of Turnitin, or external articles covering effective practice in the subjects of e-assessment, e-submission and e-feedback.

E-assessment and e-submission staff guide

This staff development guide outlines the range of e-assessment-and-e-submission tools we have at Aston for staff.

These range from learning platforms (Blackboard and Pebble pad), through to “optical mark” readers and student voting systems.


University Guidance

This guide was issued to staff in March 2011. It covers guidance for all staff considering large scale adoption of Turnitin for text matching, complementing existing academic misconduct procedures.


Effective Assessment in a Digital Age

Effective Assessment in a Digital Age is aimed at those in higher and further education who design assessment and feedback for their learners. The guide draws on recent JISC reports and case studies from different contexts and modes of learning to explore the relationship between technology-enhanced assessment and feedback practices and meaningful, well-supported learning experiences.

Adapting existing assessment procedures to design out opportunities for plagiarism, and to enhance the timeliness and quality of feedback is key. The above JISC programme projects, and case studies provide guidance in all facets of e-assessment, e-submission and e-feedback.
