Students who are registered with the Dyslexia/SpLD Service are entitled to use a blue marking card.
If a blue marking card is submitted with a student's piece of work, the marker should follow the Guidelines for Marking Work of Students with Dyslexia or Specific Learning Difficulties (PDF). The following approach should be taken:
For modules where academic standards would be compromised by applying dyslexia/SpLD marking concessions, exemption may be requested (Word doc.). If approved, work marked for these modules should clearly indicate where and how many marks were lost because of poor spelling, grammar and punctuation.
Students will no longer need to insert the Jpeg of the blue card into their essays if they wish their work to be marked in accordance with the blue card guidelines. Instead, they can add the blue card automatically through the Moodle and Turnitin interfaces at the point of submitting their work. This option is only available to students who are registered with the Dyslexia/SpLD Service. To help you understand the new system so you can identify which submissions have the blue marking card added, please use these screencasts or step-by-step instructions for use of the online blue marking card.
