Are you a new marker? Or do you know any new markers? Or would you like a refresher on the best marking practices?

This activity demystifies how to go about marking, what types of comments to make and where, and provides some sample comments. It shares evidence-based tips and will give you the tools and the confidence to make the most of the marking. And it does it all in 5 minutes!

Please share it with others and… happy marking!

If you have any comments on the activity, or ideas for improvement, do email me at I’d love to hear from you.

I'm a 'long-term' Mq girl. I did my PhD here and taught on different courses, ranging from 1st year to PhD students. I now work in Learning and Teaching, which I love. I have 2 young kids and a dog, and I love meeting other Mq people, so give me a shout if you'd like to talk 'learning and teaching' or would like to brainstorm together.
