SaGE stands for Submission and Grading Electronically. The University of Northampton Assessment and Feedback policy specifies that most assessments must be submitted and graded electronically, and many different technology options are available to support this process, including Blackboard Learn and Turnitin.
Grades and feedback need to be carefully controlled during marking, to avoid releasing feedback too early or not at all. If you are unfamiliar with NILE, you are strongly advised to attend a SaGE training organised by LearnTech before marking your first assignment. Please contact the LearnTech team to request a training session.
If this isn’t possible, the following link should be helpful.
