ANGEL—Creating Rubrics

Evaluating all submissions against the same set of criteria can be done in a simple three-step process. Once created, the instructor can point and click within the cell that corresponds to the student’s level of achievement. The rubric calculates the score based on the point value of the assignment, and if needed, the instructor can override any point value.

Turnitin ANGEL Integration

A Turnitin drop box allows students to submit a paper and run an originality report to see if the paper contains plagiarism or similarities to other submitted work. Turnitin supports the writing process for students by enforcing good summarizing/synopsizing techniques and assists faculty in promoting academic integrity. The Turnitin drop box allows access to all Turnitin services (OriginalityCheck, GradeMark, and PeerMark) without having to leave the ANGEL environment or log into Turnitin directly. You will learn how to set up a Turnitin drop box and leave ready to use this service.
