Online marking has the potential to make the single biggest improvement to marking reliability.
A recent Ofqual study found that:-
“Online marking is now the main type of marking used in general qualifications. In summer 2012, around two thirds (66%) of all scripts were marked online. With 43% of examiners telling us that fitting marking in around their main job can be “very” or “somewhat” challenging.”
With online delivery of scripts to home computers or tablets, online marking can provide your markers with greater flexibility to mark within their hectic schedule
