eMarker® technology

e-Marker® manages the entire marking process, keeping you informed at every step, with quality controls in real time. e-Marker® improves:

  • Quality: Marking reliability and validity are improved with automated quality control and quality methodologies: sampling, double-marking and seeding.
  • Efficiency: Automation of previously manual tasks, including online standardisation, script retrieval, and publishing marked scripts.
  • Security: Features including anonymity and allocation of markers, reduce opportunities for malpractice and increase security.
  • Speed: Turnaround times are improved as time spent remarking and reallocating scripts is reduced.
  • Cost: Savings are achieved with reductions in marker workload, number of checkers, and logistics.
  • Management: Real time, accurate data and reports enable informed decision making and immediate actions.
