Familiarise yourself with the current question papers and mark scheme in E Marker 2




After you have downloaded the question paper and mark scheme, you should familiarise yourself with them in E Marker 2. You can do this by opening E Marker 2 and logging in with your E Marker 2 password. You will see a list of available assignments for marking. You should select the one that matches the question paper and mark scheme you have downloaded. You will then see a screen with two tabs: Question Paper and Mark Scheme. You can switch between them by clicking on them. You should read through both tabs carefully and make sure you understand the requirements and expectations for marking.


Complete the standardisation in E Marker 2 or at a remote meeting




Before you start marking scripts, you need to complete the standardisation process. This is to ensure that you are applying the mark scheme consistently and accurately. There are two ways to complete the standardisation: in E Marker 2 or at a remote meeting.


  • In E Marker 2: You will be given a set of scripts to mark as part of your standardisation. These scripts have been pre-marked by your team leader or principal examiner and are used as examples of good practice. You should mark these scripts in E Marker 2 following the mark scheme and submit them for review. You will then receive feedback from your team leader or principal examiner on how well you have marked them. You may need to repeat this process until you achieve an acceptable level of accuracy.



  • At a remote meeting: You will be invited to attend a remote meeting with your team leader or principal examiner and other examiners via Zoom or Teams. In this meeting, you will be shown a set of scripts that have been pre-marked by your team leader or principal examiner and are used as examples of good practice. You will be asked to comment on how they have been marked and why they have been given certain marks. You will also be able to ask questions and clarify any doubts about the mark scheme.



You should complete the standardisation as soon as possible after receiving your assignment, as you will not be able to start marking scripts until you do so.


Start marking scripts in E Marker 2 and submit them in batches




After you have completed the standardisation, you can start marking scripts in E Marker 2. You will be allocated a number of scripts to mark based on your availability and experience. You can access these scripts by logging in to E Marker 2 and selecting your assignment. You will then see a screen with three tabs: Scripts, Marking Summary, and Reports.


  • Scripts: This is where you can view, mark, annotate, and submit scripts. You can use various tools such as zoom, highlight, strikeout, comment, etc., to mark scripts according to the mark scheme. You can also use keyboard shortcuts for faster marking. You should check each script carefully for completeness, legibility, authenticity, malpractice, etc., before submitting it.



  • Marking Summary: This is Marking Summary: This is where you can see the progress and status of your marking. You can see how many scripts you have marked, how many you have left, how many you have submitted, etc. You can also see the quality indicators such as accuracy, consistency, and reliability of your marking. You should aim to maintain a high level of quality throughout your marking.



  • Reports: This is where you can access various reports related to your marking. You can see the feedback and supervision from your team leader, the seeding and review results, the marking statistics, etc. You should review these reports regularly and act on any issues or recommendations.



You should mark scripts in batches and submit them in batches. A batch is a group of scripts that are marked and submitted together. The size of a batch may vary depending on the subject and level of the exam, but it is usually between 10 and 20 scripts. You should not submit more than one batch per day, unless instructed otherwise by your team leader. You should also not mark more than 8 hours per day, unless agreed with your team leader.


Receive feedback and supervision from your team leader through seeding and review




While you are marking scripts in E Marker 2, you will receive feedback
