Marking System

A marking system intended to support a wide variety of assessments (or at least the ones that Mark has to deal with).

Editor types:

  • Scale - Likert scale.
  • Numeric - Text input for decimal numbers.

Criterion types:

  • Normal - the mark will be weighted and included in the total.
  • Special - the mark will not be weighted and is NOT included in the total. This is useful for bonus marks that can be applied across multiple assessments. Also useful if we are just recording marks and don't care about the totals (such as exam marking where we are marking a subset of an exam).
  • Penalty - the mark will NOT be weighted and is SUBTRACTED from the total. Useful for late submission penalties.


Individual Assessment

  1. Enter students into Student table. Leave Team_ID as null.
  2. Enter submission into Submission table. Use whatever you want in the Name column - probably want the student's name.

Team/Group Assessment

  1. Switch the FK in the Submission table to Team rather than Student
  2. Enter teams into Team table.
  3. Enter team ID and Name into Submission table.
  4. Enter students into Student table and link to Team table via Team_ID.
  5. Modify Report view to use Team_ID for Student instead of Submission_ID


For things like late penalties.

  1. Add a criterion. Set the Weight to 1.0. Set the Min to 0, and the Max to the maximum mark. Set the Editor_Type to Numeric and the Criterion_Type to Penalty.

Bonus/Special Marks

For marks that are handled seperately from this assessment.

  1. Add a criterion. Set the Weight to 1.0. Set the Editor_Type to Numeric and the Criterion_Type to Special.
