ACT, Turnitin and Calibrand join forces for online assignment submission
The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT), the world’s leading professional body for treasury, has taken the next step with their online assessment delivery strategy for their core qualification – the Diploma in Treasury Management: Digital Student Assignments!
The new functionality allows ACT’s students to download their assignment briefs and submit their assignments online using Calibrandtest. Once submitted, the real benefits to ACT start to shine through:
- Systems integration
- Unoriginal content detected and clearly highlighted
- Streamlined marking
- Faster results turnaround
Calibrandtest links directly to Turnitin using Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) to detect and clearly highlight unoriginal content. ACT’s assessors are
provided with actionable information to help check for plagiarism and evaluate the use of sources on each submitted assignment, giving greater peace of mind that this is the student’s own work. Once analysed, the streamlining of the assignment process is completed by assessors using calibrandmarker for a clean and consistent marking process.
Commenting on the announcement, ACT Director of Learning and Professional Standards, Vanessa Harwood-Whitcher said:
“This latest step marks the continued commitment from ACT to deliver and mark all forms of assessment online and keeps us at the forefront as the
leading professional body for treasury. The simplicity of the interaction between the calibrand and Turnitin systems allows us to easily check for potential plagiarism and mark with a consistent approach”
Managing Director of Calibrand, Denis Saunders, said:
“This is a great step for ACT and has proved yet again the synergies and great benefits for achieving interaction between the right systems.”
