Alison Graham
Lecturer, School of Biology, Newcastle University, UK

Award 2015
United Kingdom, Higher Ed

Alison is a Lecturer in the School of Biology, and although Turnitin has been utilised for some time at the University for text matching, Alison was the first person in her School to use Turnitin's online marking and grading. Her interest in online marking was driven by students reporting frustration with the feedback they were receiving, including comments made in the National Student Survey.

Alison initiated a project using GradeMark to open up a dialogue with students and provide feedback online, including holding tutorials to talk through the marking criteria and providing specific feedback comments that related directly to the marking criteria. 

“Usage of Feedback Studio's online grading features has resulted in greater student engagement with the feedback process and an increase in student satisfaction with the quality, quantity, and promptness of feedback provided.”​

Alison now been approached by colleagues throughout the University to share her experiences and has increased adoption of Turntin's online marking capabilities in other modules. Most importantly there has been extremely positive feedback from students including an increase in favourable responses to questions about feedback in the National Student Survey.
