e-Marker® processes 5 million AQA GCE and GCSE exam scripts

DRS e-Marker® solutions were deployed across the country in processing 60% of this summer’s AQA GCE and GCSE exam series.

Involving 5 million scripts, DRS electronic marking technology was used by over 11,000 examiners in their homes, compared with 6,400 examiners last year using it to mark 4 million scripts. These 11,000 examiners represent nearly half the total number of examiners marking AQA GCE and GCSE scripts this summer.

Nearly 350 exam components were marked using the full range of DRS electronic marking technology, and GCE components were included for the first time this year.

e-Marker® is a modular electronic marking system that supports examiners and the marking process to provide direct mark capture of examination papers at the question and part question level.
