    • Allows feedback to be tracked, stored and collated more efficiently also providing an archive and overview of the feedback history on individual students
    • Automated features of word processors: word count and editing of text (highlight, copy, paste). Helps to reuse comments.
    • Eliminates printing costs
    • Faster return of scripts and feedback
    • Improved legibility of comments received

  • 19. Any barriers?
    • The need for a computer, software and an internet connection means that marking effectively becomes less ‘portable’, although the use of laptops and wireless technology mitigate against this.
    • Marking entirely on-screen, some may find it more difficult to make quick comparisons between candidates’ work, or to ‘flick through’ a pile of scripts.
