Staff views Personalised feedback Rubric used as a starting point to tailor individual feedback Consistent feedback Rubric used to deliver common messages to cohort Feedback given in a consistent manner
Student Views The previous system enabled much more comprehensive and detailed feedback within the text. This was far more useful than the new system. Generally more consistent because the feedback was structured. I have noticed no reduction in the depth/quality of marking, and the fact that I can access it instantly from my phone is excellent.
Student Views The quality and consistency still depends on the individual tutor who gives feedback disregarding the system (paper or electronic). The rubric is too generic, the feedback is not individualised, therefore not at all constructive therefore cannot be used to improve further assignments. … Tutors use rubrics as an excuse to not have to give individual feedback, as this allows them to just tick relevant boxes and not comment at all. Found it very impersonal.
Discussion What systems have you used? How does your experience match with ours? What plans do you have for eMarking? Experience using iPads?
