Markers will strictly apply word limits and won't mark work above them. Markers will use plagiarism detection software.
The iLearn website includes detailed marking rubrics. Markers undertake a process of 'blind marking' to establish a common marking standard. Markers will double mark all Fail assessments. The Unit Convenor will subject marks to moderation for the purposes of consistency and quality standards.
