Marking quality is one of the biggest challenges faced by awarding bodies and professional organisations around the world.

Poor or inconsistent exam marking has consequences for all parties involved in the process: impact on student life chances, reputational damage for awarding bodies and professional organisations, and extra work for examiners due to increasing numbers of re-marking requests.

One awarding body found that 14% of the paper forms used to manually record marks were filled out incorrectly each year. Moreover, 10% of the traditionally marked exam papers were subject to enquiry and the majority had their marks changed. Other countries, such as India, Poland, Slovenia and the Caribbean have faced the same challenge and have started transitioning to online marking systems to improve the quality of their exam marking.
