Divide submissions into sub-groups for different markers

1. Introduction

This guide provides information to help staff set up Turnitin assignments for marking by different tutors. You can do this using sub-groups.

2. Create sub-groups

Before you start, first set up sub-groups in your module by following the steps in our guide to creating sub-groups. You can then create assignments for each of the groups.

3. Create and release sub-group assignments

Now the sub-groups are set up, you can create assignments for each of the groups. If you’re not sure which type of assignment you need to create, please view our online assessment and feedback mapping diagram.

a. Create an assignment for each sub-group, giving the assignment a name that identifies which colleagues will mark it, e.g. Assignment - Group 1, Assignment - Group 2.

b. Click the action link (arrow) next to the assignment name, and click Adaptive Release.

Important: With Adaptive Release, students will only see the assignment they need to submit to. Instructors can still see and access all assignments. It’s important to clearly indicate which assignment the tutor should be marking, in the assignment name. You can also change the settings to mark anonymously in the submission areas.

c. To make the assignment visible to specific students, in the Membership section there is a section labelled Module sub-groups. The Items to Select box should contain a list of the sub-groups you created earlier. 

d. Click the sub-group you’re making the assignment visible to, then click the right arrow to move the sub-group into the Selected Items box.

e. Click Submit.

4. Mark and leave feedback

You can follow the steps in our leaving feedback for a Turnitin assignment guide in order to mark the submission in Feedback Studio.
