A Marking System Designed for Efficiency and Fragmented or Collaborative Assessments

Zhuhan Jiang and Jiansheng Huang

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.
