For use where students work together on an assignment, and work is submitted on behalf of the whole group. All members of the group will receive the same mark and feedback, although if required different marks and feedback can also be provided for individual students.


Anonymous marking and moderation is technically possible, but involves the use of potentially cumbersome workarounds.


Set up a group assignment on Blackboard and add the members of the group. A representative from the group submits the work on behalf of the group.

Assigning of marks and provision of feedback:
