How e-marking can improve the quality assurance of exam marking

Marking quality is one of the biggest challenges faced by awarding bodies and professional organisations around the world.

Poor or inconsistent exam marking has consequences for all parties involved in the process: impact on student life chances, reputational damage for awarding bodies and professional organisations, and extra work for examiners due to increasing numbers of re-marking requests.

One awarding body found that 14% of the paper forms used to manually record marks were filled out incorrectly each year. Moreover, 10% of the traditionally marked exam papers were subject to enquiry and the majority had their marks changed. Other countries, such as India, Poland, Slovenia and the Caribbean have faced the same challenge and have started transitioning to online marking systems to improve the quality of their exam marking.

From this webinar you will find out:
• What are the key exam marking challenges faced by awarding bodies and professional organisations around the world
• What the most common paper-based marking errors and biases are, and how e-marking can help you reduce them: transcription and addition errors, halo effect, cultural, gender and centre biases
• What quality control models are available in e-marking solutions: seeding, double marking, multiple marking, item-level marking
• What monitoring and communication tools are available in e-marking solutions that help to improve marking quality

Is marking quality one of your key challenges? Could you do more as an awarding body to remove marking bias, inconsistencies and errors?

If you want to find out how e-marking can help you improve the quality of your exam marking, join our webinar on Thursday 20th July at 6pm BST (GMT+1).
