How do I create a video assignment point to attach grades and feedback to? (Staff)

Note: It is recommended that those using Panopto for Assignment uploads for the first time contact the E-Learning Team for advice.

In the Blackboard module go to:

  • Assignments
  • Assessments
  • Turnitin Assignment

Select Paper Assignment and click Next Step

Under Assignment Title state the Turnitin point is for grades and feedback only, for example:

“View Grade & Feedback for Assignment ? Here - from x date....”

  • Give a Point Value of 100

To prevent students from submitting work to the assignment (which could delete the feedback provided):

  • Set the Due date to be immediately after  the Start date
  • Say No to Allow submissions after the due Date?

Under Optional settings, Enter special instructions, make clear that students are not expected to submit files to this assignment. For example:

“DO NOT SUBMIT ASSIGNMENTS HERE.

To View your Grade and Feedback for the assignment either click on the above link, or go to the Tools menu on the left and My Grades.”

  • Say Yes to Reveal grades to students only on post-date?
  • Enable anonymous marking? should be set to No
  • Press Submit and OK.

If you want the Turnitin point only to be available to students on the Post Date:

Go to:

  • Assignments
  • The down arrow at the right of the Turnitin point
  • Adaptive Release
  • Set a display after date of the Post date for the Assignment
  • Presss Submit and OK
