Anonymous Assignment looks different – what’s new?

The ELDT have been working closely with the SITS team and IT Services to improve the Anonymous Assignment tool in the VLE. This project has now reached a trial stage and as part of the trial the Anonymous Assignment tool looks different.

New Anonymous Assignment Interface
Unless you are taking part in the trial (and you will know if you are), please just ignore the new drop down menus that have appeared.

How do I download assignments and the summary spreadsheet?

To download assignments and the summary spreadsheet tick the appropriate options and click the submit button. You will be presented with a zip file containing all the student submitted work and the summary spreadsheet.

The summary spreadsheet contains a new column ‘disability sticker’, what’s that?

Even if you are not participating in the trial you will be able to take advantage of this improvement. The summary spreadsheet contains a new column called disability sticker which contains a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ for each student who has submitted. This indicates if the student has dyslexia or dyspraxia recorded on their student record in SITS.

Has anything changed from the student perspective?

No. You do not need to advise students differently in any way. The procedure for creating a new Anonymous Assignment submission point is also unchanged.

Any questions, contact: vle-support@york.ac.uk. For more information on the trial please read this blog post.
