Aberystwyth University is taking part in the Digital Experience Insights project aiming to explore our students’ experiences of technology. The project is based on online surveys designed by Jisc and used by different institutions across the UK.
It allows us to gain insight into how students use technology and to benchmark our results against other HE institutions in our sector.

From September 2020, two new settings should be used on all Turnitin submission points. This is so that students can view their Similarity Report (as agreed by Academic Board).

2. Allow Students to See Similarity Reports – Yes

Online tests and quizzes can be created for your students using the Tests function in Blackboard. Tests can be provided as a formative method of assessment, as a self-assessment method for students, or as a more formal means of assessing student performance.
The Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit have recently updated our Blackboard Tests guidance, to support staff in providing online assessment activities for students.
Why Use Blackboard Tests in my module?
Reinforce learning. Research has shown that tests and quizzes are powerful tools to promote retrieval practice, aid revision and improve learning.
Valuable feedback. Blackboard Tests can provide varied, additional feedback opportunities for students.
Media rich experience. Videos, images and links to recordings and external resources can be provided within the questions and answers.
