    Word 2003/7: addin to save time when marking or grading assignments and using rubrics

    Several people have asked about tools to help them mark electronic assignments. I've been a long time user of Word's autotext, comments and track changes and recently created an addin to make it easier for people to provide useful, detailed, and timely feedback on electronic assignments and the use of automated marking rubrics.

    The movie at the following location provides an quick demonstration of some of the features of the software.
    Using demo

    The software is an add-in to Microsoft Word (all versions of Word for Windows) which allows markers to quickly insert comments from a floating toolbar using the mouse or keyboard. These comments can be very detailed and can contain text, tables, images, hyperlinks, audio or anything else you can insert into a Word document. Inserted comments can be modified and markers can easily store new comments for future reuse and the comment bank can be easily moved to another computer or saved for future reuse. Existing users tend to have several comment banks e.g. a comment bank that is shared across a department as well as course and assignment specific comment banks. eMarking Assistant reduces marking time, increases student satisfaction and also reduces the need for moderation. A comment bank focusing on academic writing is supplied. The package also contains suggested workflow when marking electronic assignments and modifiable marking rubrics which automatically add and rescale marks.

    Also included are Word based marking rubrics which you can easily select standards and record marks using function keys and then automatically total and rescale these. Instructions for adding your own criteria, standards and marks are included.

    More information about eMarking Assistant and a trial download is available from
    http://emarking-assistant.baker-evans.com

    A one year license to use eMarking Assistant on two computers is currently $USD20 and site licences are available.

    As relevant as this may be, you should note that only site sponsors are permitted to post advertisements on EduGeek. This is clearly stated in bold text in the forum rules when you sign up, and is in the FAQ. I would advise you to get in touch with an admin to discuss.

    (Note: I am not a moderator or admin on this forum, but as you are a new user I just wanted to let you know what the position is.)
