Abstract

Recent surveys reveal that many university students in the U.K. are
not satisfied with the timeliness and usefulness of the feedback given
by their tutors. Ensuring timeliness in marking can result in a
reduction in the quality of feedback. Though suitable use of
Information and Communication Technology should alleviate this
problem, existing Virtual Learning Environments are inadequate to
support detailed marking scheme creation and they provide little
support for giving detailed feedback. This paper describes a unique
new web-based tool called e-CAF for facilitating coursework assessment
and feedback management directed by marking schemes. Using e-CAF,
tutors can create or reuse detailed marking schemes efficiently
without sacrificing the accuracy or thoroughness in marking. The
flexibility in marking scheme design also makes it possible for tutors
to modify a marking scheme during the marking process without having
to reassess the students' submissions. The resulting marking process
will become more transparent to students.
