Marking and awarding are carried out on a number of online systems. As part of the support provided to examiners we have the following guidance for online marking systems, including ePEN2, ePEN, Scanned Attachments, Mark Review, EARs and Online Mark Capture.
ePEN2 is the new, improved online marking platform which is being used for the 2018 October and November examination series. Please be aware that on-demand tests have not transitioned to ePEN2 yet and are still marked on ePEN.
Supports the marking of on-demand tests only. Series based papers are now marked using ePEN2.
Novus is an awarding platform used by Senior Examiners.
The Examiners’ Report Assistant (ERA) is currently available for those papers which have been marked on ePEN.
Scanned attachments and Non-standard scripts
Scanned Attachment Marking Online System (SAMOS) is used to mark scripts which contain additional pages and Non-stardard scripts to mark answers in the form of word documents or incomplete scripts.
Online marking Mark Review activity is used to amend script marks which were orginally marked on ePEN.
Traditional Marking / Online Mark Capture
Online Mark Capture allows Examiners to submit marks for traditionally marked papers.
Enquiry about Results (EAR)
The EAR system allows you to mark scripts as part of the Enquiry about Results activity.
