The Assignment Activity lets students submit work and allows teachers to give grades and feedback in Moodle.  This documentation will guide you through the process of giving feedback and marks for assignments submitted online via Moodle. 

Should you have any queries, please contact the e-Learning team at e-learning@bath.ac.uk.

For Advanced users, Moodle Docs contains a comprehensive set of instructions for the Assignment activity.

Turnitin is a web based plagiarism detection service. The service allows for the submission of assignments to the Turnitin website, which checks for matching text against a database of previously submitted work and other online sources.

New and current users of the Moodle/Turnitin integration should also refer to the following forum post: Turnitin errors within the Assignment activity.

Giving Feedback

Marking with Rubrics

Grading rubrics can be set up in Moodle to facilitate criterion based assessment. The grading rubric is extremely easy to set up and can be helpful in improving consistency of marking (particularly where there are multiple markers), and in enhancing the feedback given to the student.
