Abstract—While standard e-platforms do support a variety
of teaching and learning activities in tertiary institutions to
different degrees, they are typically designed to be “doable” and
sometimes even theoretically so anyway, rather than taking
efficiency as an equally high priority. In contrast, we developed
a marking system to streamline the handling of marking
allocations, irregular student transitions from class to class or
from marker to marker, dynamic membership changes of
student group work, instant creation and re-use of
marker-defined feedback comments, along with other
associated activities. In this work, we will however focus more
on the functionalities and their design details on creating a
marking system that especially well supports dynamically
adaptable marking criteria and freely adjustable feedback data
banks. The designing goal is to make this system as efficient as
possible to the markers, as fair as possible to all the students,
and as convenient as possible to the system operators.
Index Terms—E-learning tools, marking system, optimized efficiency, fragmented or collaborative assessments, improved fairness.
