Marking a FLOWmulti exam or quiz (10:26 minutes)  

A FLOWmulti exam is an exam that is authored on the AssessmentUCL platform. The benefits for marking are that markers can be allocated to a specific section of the exam to mark. However FLOWmulti exams do not have Turnitin reports for markers, nor do they allow for in-line annotation e.g. highlighting, free hand draw. To learn more, please see the Getting started with AssessmentUCL guide

Marking specific questions within an exam paper  

For FLOWassign submissions, students are being asked to submit their response as a single PDF. Hence it will NOT be possible to allocate markers to specific questions in the platform (i.e. section based-marking) for this assessment type. 

In AssessmentUCL, it is possible for different markers to record marks for specific questions using the annotation tool.  However, totalling marks would need to be done manually, most likely by the Module Lead. Marking questions in AssessmentUCL is not a requirement, and you might find it easier to use a Department spreadsheet instead.

Please see the video (7ms 1s) below from last year, which demonstrates an approach to recording question marks within AssessmentUCL.

Reconciling Marks: 

There are two approaches to reconciling marks on AssessmentUCL.

  • Marker agreement: markers must agree and submit the same mark.
  • Reviewer approval:  markers can submit different marks, which a nominated Reviewer then reconciles. The nominated reviewer could be one of the markers or the module lead*

The Manager can set which approach is used for any given assessment or flow, but they should do so before marking has started.

Please note slight terminology changes were introduced in March 2022 to the AssessmentUCL platform.

  • 'Assessments' are now called 'Grades'.
  • The 'Agreement between Co-assessors' process is now called 'Marker agreement'.
  • the 'Approval by Reviewer' process is now called 'Reviewer approval'.

Marker agreement (6:41 minutes)  

As of October 2022, a separate mark history is recorded on AssessmentUCL which will show both marker's initial marks and then the final agreed-upon mark. Markers can also add a comment documenting reasons for mark changes. The External Examiner will see the marking is agreed but can look into the mark history and at any comments left to find out more.

Reviewer approval (5:36 minutes)
