PARTICIPANT INFORMATION STATEMENT

The aim of this study is to ascertain teacher attitudes to and use of Quicklinks QuickMarks in providing language feedback to students via Turnitin Grademark. The study is being conducted by Benet Vincent at Coventry University.  You have been selected to take part in this questionnaire survey because you are a teacher who uses Turnitin Grademark to give feedback to students and you have been introduced to the Quicklinks QuickMarks set on Grademark.

Your participation in the survey is entirely voluntary, and you can opt out at any stage by closing and exiting the browser.   If you are happy to take part, please answer the following questions relating to your use of the Quicklinks Quickmarks set.  Your answers will help us to understand how these are used, whether they are useful, and what changes we might make to improve them.  The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. 

Your answers will be treated confidentially.  Your data will be held securely in online surveys and, once collection is complete, on a password-protected One Drive folder.  The project has been reviewed and approved through the formal Research Ethics procedure at Coventry University. 

For further information, or if you have any queries, please contact the lead researcher Benet Vincent at ab6667@coventry.ac.uk.  If you have any concerns that cannot be resolved through the lead researcher, please contact Holly Vass (aa4286@coventry.ac.uk).
