Most e-assessment at UCL is managed via Moodle. Assessment in Moodle can take different shapes, but the main activitie sused for assessment are Turnitin Assignments, Moodle Assignments and Quizzes.
When it is released in 2016-17, you will be able to see your assessments from across Moodle courses in one place using the My Feedback report.
If there is an 'Activities' block in your course, this provides a quick link to the assessment type activities that are in the course. Your Moodle calendar will also tell you about any assessment due dates that are on the course. Your course tutor should also keep you informed of ho wassessment will be used in your Moodle course.
Please see below for more information on the three amin types of assessment used in Moodle courses.
Turnitin assignments with plagiarism detection
Turnitin assignments are similar to Moodle assignments, but as well as allowing students to submit their work, they also allow staff and/or students to check citations and references to other sources.
Refer to the Turnitin Guide.
Moodle assignment submissions
Moodle assignments are similar to Turnitin assignments, without the plagiarism detection component. They allow students to submit their work to staff and optionally for grades and feedback to be provided. Please see the Assignment guide
Moodle provides a quiz tool that can be used for self-tests as well as e-exams.
If you are going to be taking an e-exam in Moodle, we recommend taking a Practice exam first. If your tutor does not already have one available, you can access a generic one here:
Refer to the Student Moodle Quiz Exam Reference for information on how to navigate,save and submit your exam at the end.
My feedback report
In 16/17 UCL Moodle will contain a new feature called My Feedback. The tool allows students and their Personal Tutors to view feedback across modules in one place. Module tutors can also see student feedback for the courses they are teaching.
My Feedback features include:
- View feedback and grades from across Moodle courses in one place.
- Export feedback and grades to excel.
- View feedback and grades for assignments, quizzes, workshops (for peer assessment) and manual grade items (for offline assessments like presentations etc.).
- Filter and sort by module and assessment type.
