GradeMark and PeerMark
GradeMark is an online marking tool. Students must submit papers through a TurnitinUK assignment. After submission, the instructor will have the option to use the plagiarism detection tool and/or use GradeMark for marking purposes.
PeerMark allows students to evaluate Turnitin assignment submissions made by themselves and other students. Students are awarded grades if they complete an evaluation of a peers' work.
