comments from the students they also seemed positive. Took some time to set up the specific comments needed for this assignment but once they were written it was easy to use for remaining assignments. I enjoyed the experience. I was slow starting initially, because I was adding to the standard comments section. After the first few assignments, this section made the process much faster overall because I was tending to make similar comments on the assignments. So well worth investing the time and effort in developing the comments section initially. GradeMark for e-Marking and Feedback Denis Parkinson & Stephen McKinnell Issues
