Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education Volume 34, Number 4, ISSN 0260-2938
This article reports on selected aspects of a larger study on the use of electronic tools in the context of the management and marking of assignments. The study comprised a literature review, interviews and a review of e-tools. The article briefly summarises the findings from the literature on what comprises quality in assignment marking. The focus then shifts towards the analysis of the interviews on e-tool use for assignments that were conducted with 90 lecturers across five higher education institutions in New Zealand, selected purposively for engagement in this area. The article shows how these lecturers are using e-tools to support the management and marking of assignments. Special emphasis is given on grounding the e-tool use in educational theories on assignment marking. An important issue with high quality assignment marking is the time required. The article shows how e-tools are used to increase efficiency, with the time freed-up being invested into quality improvements, again supported by e-tools.
