The 2018/19 academic year has seen quite a surge in departmental use of the VLE’s standard Assignment tool to handle formative assignment electronically. The standard Assignment tool provides an end-to-end workflow for assignment allowing students to submit their work via the VLE, staff to mark and provide feedback (including annotations) on student submissions directly in the VLE and for students to view their marks and/or feedback within the VLE.
A number of departments are also using this tool for non-anonymous summative submissions.
To support this increased use we’ve developed a series of short help videos covering the most common tasks you might need to undertake within Yorkshare (the VLE) when:
- setting up a standard Assignment submission point
- marking submissions made to a standard Assignment submission point using the Grade Centre (including use of Box View for annotation and Rubrics)
- creating and assigning marking rubrics to standard Assignment submission points
- simplifying Grade Centre display and creating custom views of the Grade Centre
- creating non-scored assessments
- removing or revealing student access to marks and feedback
These videos have been uploaded to YouTube and also divided into two play-lists (see below).

Marking standard Assignment submissions:
Note that the standard Assignment tool also supports group submissions, integrated text-matching (using SafeAssign – TurnItIn is not integrated with this tool), delegated grading and anonymous grading. If you think you might wish to use one of these features then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us about this (at firstname.lastname@example.org) as there are further complicating considerations to take into account when using these additional options.
The individual videos in this guidance series are as follows:
