  11. 11. Using GradeMarkUpload a ‘piece of work’ as one of your students: Any doc will do Important notes: • Students can submit their own work easily, here or at home BUT: • If they cannot, for whatever reason, you can do it for them Stephen Taylor, Bandung International School www.bisdragons.com
  12. 12. Using GradeMarkCheck for submissions: Important notes: • Click on the apple or the assignment name to open it. • ‘Submitted’ in red means late. • ‘Similarity’ is an overall match to many sources. The content and citation are more important than the ‘%’ score. • You can type comments under ‘feedback’ or with GradeMark BUT: • GradeMark comments don’t appear here. Students need to open the work to see. Stephen Taylor, Bandung International School www.bisdragons.com
  13. 13. Using GradeMarkFirst check for originality: Any doc will do Important notes: • The ‘%’ is not as important as what and where it came from BUT: • You can use the links in the overview to view individual sources Stephen Taylor, Bandung International School www.bisdragons.com

  16. 16. Using GradeMarkQuickMark Tricks:Important notes: • QuickMarks can be copied into other sets and even exported. • They appear as blue bubbles on the work, which expand when you or a student ‘rolls over’. They get listed at the end of the work if you export it as a pdf or print it later on. Stephen Taylor, Bandung International School www.bisdragons.com
  17. 17. Giving more feedback: Important notes: • If you are a faster typist or your handwriting, like mine, is an unintelligible scrawl, this can add a lot of value to your feedback. • When you close this window, the following screen appears as the grades synchronise with Moodle: • Students need to open the assignment to see feedback, so point them in the right direction and give a little time to try it. Stephen Taylor, Bandung International School www.bisdragons.com

  19. 19. Using GradeMarkHow can this reflect good practice? It should be one of multiple sources of feedback • Alongside other formative and summative strategies used in your class It should be specific and addresses targets • Based on IBDP performance criteria and assessment rubrics It should be immediate and timely • Students should self-assess their work before submission • Students can see grades and comments as soon as they are posted • Give students opportunities to reflect on their work using your feedback • Students can refer back to the feedback to learn for next time It should be descriptive and non-judgmental • Give students specific points for improvement Stephen Taylor, Bandung International School www.bisdragons.com
