Viewing marks and feedback

WarningPlease be aware that marks for assessment tasks displayed through the Moodle site are provided as a guide to your progress in the unit. These are not your official grades for the unit.

Official results, which may vary from those displayed on the Moodle site, are only available following their consideration and approval at the relevant School Examination Board, and ratified by Examinations and Results, Student Administration and Services Directorate at the end of each teaching period.


Viewing the status and grades

There are several ways you can see if your assignment has been graded. 

Moodle My home

Your grade and feedback for assignments is usually available in Moodle. Selecting the assignment icon on the  Moodle Dashboard will indicate if your assignment has been graded.

GradeMark is an online marking system built into Turnitin. It allows staff to digitally mark-up and grade assignments online.  It is the most common way of providing feedback for file submissions.

If Grademark is being used a blue pencil icon will appear next to the file on the assignment page when it has been marked.

Overview of Grademark

The example below illustrates the layout in Grademark and indicates key points where you will find information related to your marked assessment task. The grade may be displayed in the top right corner of the page (some markers prefer to record grades directly in Moodle). Comments may be made at points throughout the assignment. You can see more detail for each comment by hovering the mouse pointer over each. There is also an area for overall feedback (see below).
