BACKUP

Download/Archive/Backing up students' submissions and grades

It is important to note that student assignments will disappear from Moodle 16 days after the enrolment end date.
You should ensure you have downloaded and saved all marked assignments before that deadline.

If you should need to retrieve a student's data, you can manually re-enrol the student into the Moodle course and download their assignment(s). Please remember to un-enrol this student when you have downloaded what you need. If you need assignments from a whole class, you will need to manually re-enrol every student in the cohort.

Download/Backing up Turnitin assignments and grades

An inactive Turnitin activity (link) is problematic for you because if anyone clicks on the Turnitin activity, it will incorrectly enrol all the previous years students into your current Moodle course, user list and gradebook. If you want to keep your students work from this Turnitin activity, you can download their submissions (with your grades) to your computer by following these easy steps below:

1. In your Moodle course, go to your Turnitin assignment page and change the list option from "Show 10" to "Show All" (See the screen shot below).

2. Select the check box beside "Student" to select all students' assignments.

3. Click "Download".

4. Select "Selected GradeMark Files". It may take a long time to  download. Please be patient.

5. Click on "Turnitin Messages Inbox" to check if students' assignments have been downloaded. If so click on "bulk download" to save it onto your computer. Then delete the online copy by clicking on the red recycle bin icon beside it.

That's all.
