Electronic marking provides a wealth of data on marker and examination performance, offering new opportunities for detecting poor marking that were not practical in paper-based marking. Given that reliability (and specifically, marking accuracy) is a prime goal of assessment agencies, the quality assurance of markers during a live session (identifying and remedying lenient, severe or inconsistent marking) is a key endeavour.

This session will look at what we can learn from previous examination data and presents possible models for detecting aberrant marking. We will discuss the uses of ‘seeding’ item data, the possible place of double marking in electronic marking, issues of practical implementation and the role of the regulator in promoting marking reliability.
