Have you attended a Moodle Moot before?
What is the title of your presentation(s) at this year’s Moot?
At this year’s Moodlemoot, Ben Durie, Account Manager at Turnitin, will be delivering two 30-minute sessions focusing on digital assessment. Join us for both of these sessions to understand exactly how Gradescope can help with your assessment challenges:
1. Mark any assessment from anywhere with Gradescope by Turnitin
2. Improving the student experience and accelerating feedback loops
Over the past eight years, Ben has worked closely with UK senior leaders at a number of academic institutions, helping them to meet their strategic goals with the use of technology solutions. He’s looking forward to seeing you there!
Give us a brief description of what to look forward to
Over the last two years, we’ve helped academic staff at a number of top UK universities—including the University of Leeds, Durham University, and the University of Edinburgh—successfully redesign their modules for online teaching by leveraging Gradescope in their assessment practices.
Join us for our two 30-minute sessions as we share how your institution can join in to maintain a consistent and coordinated level of grading without sacrificing time—especially when it comes to managing paper-based student work.
Why have you chosen to present this topic?
As educators continue to tackle the shift to a blended teaching environment and students crave high-quality, timely feedback, we want to share how Gradescope can help to accelerate feedback loops, digitise paper assessment, and increase grading efficiency, all whilst upholding pedagogical best practices.
When assessment pairs feedback with data-driven teaching, educators have the opportunity to positively impact student learning. Our aim is to show educators that this is now even more accessible than ever—whatever the subject matter, teaching setting, or testing format.
At Turnitin, we understand that educators are still hard at work adjusting to remote learning after the upheaval caused by the pandemic. However, with our tools, teachers can deliver more assessment opportunities in less time—a necessity when teaching at a distance.
We strive to partner with institutions to provide the best possible solutions for their instructors and students.
Share with us one tool or technique you or your client implemented while using Moodle which has benefited you and your organisation!
We are proud to offer our customers a seamless integration between Gradescope and Moodle to enrich the assessment experience. Institutions can leverage the Moodle/Gradescope integration to pass their course information to Gradescope, which, in turn, allows for simple assignment setup and student access. With Gradescope integrated directly into Moodle, this helps instructors return grades to students quickly.
