Online assessment, diagram marking, entity relationship diagrams


The increased number of diagram-type student work in higher education has recently attracted researchers to look into the automation of diagram marking. This paper proposes a new (semi-automatic) marking approach to reduce number of the diagram component marked by the human marker. We believe this approach improves the marking consistency and has potential to provide individualised and detailed feedback to students with mark-ups. We have developed a prototyped web-based diagram drawing and marking tools for the approach. The initial experiment and findings for the tools are described in the paper.
