In Engineering Mathematics, it's important to mark and give feedback on assignments quickly, as each topic builds on the last.

Students working together

In this presentation, Dr Seb Savory (UCL Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering) discusses his attempts to tackle the problem. He begins by outlining the pros and cons of multiple choice questions and marking by academics and PhD/postdoc students, before going on to explain why peer marking has turned out to be the most effective method for his department. 

Seb's PowerPoint presentation slides are available to download beneath the video.
