Lecturer, School of Biology: Newcastle University: UK

Although Turnitin had been utilised for some time at the university for text-matching, Alison was the first person in her School to use the tool’s online marking features. Student frustration surrounding feedback quality prompted Alison to initiate a project to open up a dialogue on marking with them directly to the criteria. Using Turnitin as a tool, she holds tutorials to talk through the marking criteria, providing specific comments that relate directly to that criteria. Their response in the UK National Student Survey has been extremely positive.
