Catherine Tomlin

Catherine explains how to use your feedback.

So you’ve received your assignment mark and feedback. Happy? Disappointed? Shocked?

 

Here are a few tips on making use of feedback so your next essay is epic!

Don’t ignore your feedback. Your tutor has spent time explaining how you can improve. Although criticism is hard to take, it is the best way to learn and develop.

Do you know how to eSubmit your work?

Amy points out handy resources to help you with e-Submission

Turnitin is used for the e-submission of your assignments. It is an online tool that you use to upload your work so that it can be marked by your tutor. You access Turnitin from Blackboard.

Important things you need to know about submitting your work for marking

  • Use the correct naming convention for your files – your school may specify a particular format.
  • Submit your completed assignment to the correct, FINAL submissions folder when it is ready for marking. Work submitted mistakenly to the DRAFT folder at this stage will not be marked.
  • When you submit work for marking, you are accepting the submission declaration.
  • Keep copies of email receipts from Turnitin as proof of submission.
  • Check the file size. Files must be less than 40Mb. Contact your lecturer if your file is greater than 40Mb.
  • Use an accepted file type. File types accepted are: MS Word, WordPerfect, PostScript, PDF, HTML, RTF or plain text. You can ask at The Library for help if you are not sure about a file type. For non text-based assessments (e.g. audio/video, etc.) your tutor may use the Blackboard Assignment Tool.
