Please send me the first five students you mark for moderation.
Also, for any students you fail in this assignment (i.e. less than 11/22) before entering their mark/feedback into Moodle please send me their marked assignments and I will moderate them.
And for any students you give 20 marks or more to, before entering their mark/feedback into Moodle please send me their marked assignments and I will also moderate them.
Please first copy the file ASS#1 Steps 2-6 Marking Example to the student’s Word feedback file, which I label: Fred Smith ASS#1 Steps 2-6 Feedback. I save this file to my computer. I then include the student’s first name after ‘Hi’ at the beginning of the feedback in this file. Then as I mark each step I adjust this file for the marks I give the student and adjust the comments.
Here is the ACCT11059 ASS#1 Steps 3-6 Individual Feedback (as a Word document).
- Click on the student’s photo at the top of the page with the student’s assignment submission. This will take you to their personal profile on Moodle.
- Allocate marks for each part of Step 2. You only need to complete each part to get marks for each part, e.g. a few introductory words in the Description box will give you 1/1. You either give 1/1 or 0/1. Give 0/1 if there is nothing in the Description box. To get a mark for ‘Photo and description’ you only need to have included your photo.
- If the student has included a link to their blog in their personal section, click on the link; if there is a blog set up there they get 1 mark. There does not need to be anything in their blog to gain 1 mark; they just get 1 mark for setting it up.
- If the student has not included a link to their blog in their personal section, go to their Word document to see if they have included a link to their blog in their Word document.
- If you have trouble finding the student’s link to their blog in their assignment, go to the Blog Links Forum on Moodle (in the top right hand box called Communication) and search for the students name to see if the student has included a link to their blog in the Blog Links Forum.
- If you cannot find their link to their blog, give them 0/1 for ‘Link to your blog/Set up blog’.

- Add some further words in the Feedback box, including the student’s name. For example: “Hi Fred, Your feedback is in the attached file. Regards, Martin”.
