Digital documents often contain metadata that e.g. author, last saved, last edited by etc. This metadata can reveal who the author of a document is e.g. author, last edited by etcMarkers will not look for this metadata, and many platforms do not present metadata easily to markers. However, students should be aware that this metadata exists. It is best practice to remove metadata before submitting documents. This applies equally to any of UCL digital platforms including Moodle assignment, Turnitin and AssessmentUCL.
