Professor Rebecca Williams (Law Admissions Coordinator) is looking for 40+ markers to help with LNAT essay marking in the latter half of October. The work is available to members of the Faculty who are graduate research students, stipendiary lecturers and junior research fellows.
Markers will use ‘No More Marking’ software to under ‘comparative judgement’ marking of LNAT essays. This is an entirely online process and you can log-in and out of the system when it suits you. You will be working with a set of marking criteria and will be given training in both how to evaluate LNAT essays and how to use the software before we go live. Training is compulsory for any marker who not previously completed No More Marking training.
Duration and hours
Marking work is measured by marking load. Each marker will be expected to complete 12 workpackets, where one workpacket comprises 20 essay comparisons. It is expected that each workpacket will take one hour to complete, therefore the expected total time commitment is 12 hours, which will be spread over 11 days. Payment will be made upon submission of an approved timesheet.
Start date: The training session will be held on line at 12 noon on Thursday 21st October (on MS Teams). If you cannot attend at this time, please contact Emma White (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Essays are expected to be available for marking on Friday 22nd October and all marking must completed by 9am Monday 1st November
