Abstract

Marker bias has been a serious factor contributing to discrepancy in assessments. In this study we analyze one year students' results in a Business Faculty within an Australian university to understand the extent of variation induced by marker bias in multiple marker scenarios. The study shows interesting insights regarding the marking trends of a particular marker, and shows variations among markers in a particular course. The study paves the way for quantification of marker variation through objective analysis.
