Sometimes as researchers we have a collection of varied and complex artefacts that we need to place on a linear scale. These might be essays on a scale of quality, photographs on a scale of beauty, examinations on a scale of difficulty, or endless other examples.

Traditional methods involve developing rubrics and then scoring each artefact against the rubric. However this is time-consuming, resource-intensive and often we capture the letter of what we want to capture at the cost of killing the spirit.

No More Marking can help. Instead of rubrics and scoring, expert judges make direct comparisons of artefacts, resulting in a reliable and unidimensional scale.

We're keen to know how researchers are using No More Marking so please get in touch with Ian, the Senior Scientific Adviser, or Patrick, the Chief Operating Officer, to talk about your research project.
