Electronic Marking of Statistics Assessments for Bioscience Students
Ayres, Karen L.; Underwood, Fiona M.
Bioscience Education, v15 Article c4 Jun 2010
We describe the main features of a program written to perform electronic marking of quantitative or simple text questions. One of the main benefits is that it can check answers for being consistent with earlier errors, so can cope with a range of numerical questions. We summarise our experience of using it in a statistics course taught to 200 bioscience students.
