PeerMark, by Turnitin, allows you to have students do peer review online in OAKS.
When added to an OAKS Assignment, Turnitin allows for plagiarism detection as well provides a quick and easy way to grade assignments.
VoiceThread’s integration with OAKS allows instructors to create assignments for their students. These assignments can even be graded within VT and the grade sent to the OAKS Grade book. There are three types of assignments:
- Create a VoiceThread – the student will be required to create a VoiceThread of their own.
- Submit a Comment – the student will be required to comment on a VoiceThread (the number of comments can be specified).
- Watch a VoiceThread – the student will be required to watch a VoiceThread all the way through.
Rubrics are used to evaluate an activity or item based on a predefined set of criteria. They help ensure that activities and items are evaluated fairly and consistently.
