How can lecturers benefit from the use of technology to help mark and manage assignments? Find out what tools lecturers use to save time while providing processes that help provide high quality feedback.

The lecturers’ professional judgement will always be required to provide feedback on assignments such as essays, reports, design diagrams and computer programs. This takes time. There are tools available that save lecturers time and provide a more effective learning experience for the students. These tools range from Microsoft Word and learning management systems to specialist systems designed for the marking of assignments such as MarkTool and Assessi. The benefits of these tools include reducing the time required for administration issues such as tracking student work and the
management of marking teams, the ability to facilitate group activity, removing geographic limitations, improving the quality of marking and feedback and the archiving of student work. These benefits apply to both distance and on campus courses.    

This work is based on a year long study that included a literature review, a survey of ninety lecturers and the development of a framework for formative assessment supported by e-learning tools. The Tertiary Education Commission funded this project through the e-Learning Collaborative Development Fund.

Intended Audience

Lecturers in all disciplines particularly those interested in the effective use of e-learning.
