Improving marking quality in essays – can technology help?

The presentation will address how marking quality in essays or long-form answers has been approached traditionally and explain how using images of candidates', answers can enable new quality mechanisms to be used.The paper will build upon successful work already undertaken with shorter, constructed questions, which was presented at IAEA in Baku in 2007. Significant developments have been made that combine the use of scanning technology, marking algorithms and adaptable sampling criteria to provide a dynamic approach to monitoring marking variances.The content will be relevant to those who are considering what mix of assessment formats are best used to balance marking reliability with content validity, as the processes used are focused on narrowing the gap in variance between individual markers and between markers and the agreed marking standards.
