How do I set up the marking method?

  1. Go to Marking and select the assessment you want to mark. You will be navigated to the Settings tab.
  2. Select Assessing type:
    • One assessor: one candidate (or item) will be assessed by one assessor from the assessor pool. This is the preferred option.
    • Two assessors: each candidate (or item) will be assessed by two assessors from the assessor pool (the 4 eye principle). Each assessor has an equal vote when the grade has to be awarded.
  3. For Allocation by, select one of the following options: 
    • Candidate: The candidates that need to be assesses have to be divided among the assessors (also known as 'vertical assessment').
    • Items: the items that need to be reviewed have to be divided among the assessors (also known as 'horizontal assessment').
  4. Select sharing annotations between assessors if you want to allow markers to view eachothers scores and annotations during the marking process.
    • Only if assessing same: the notes and scores are only shared if the same question/ candidate, depending on the allocation per, is checked.
    • All candidates/ Items: the notes and scores are always shared.   
  5. Select Anonymous candidate to hide the names of the candidates while they are being assessed. 
  6. If you have selected Two assessors, you can turn on the option Anonymous assessor. This means that the assessors cannot see one another.
  7. Select Use moderation to allow reassessment of the results by the other assessor. Please read the article  How do I set up moderation? for more information. 
  8. Click Save and next step to add assessors to the assessment.
