This paper discusses ideas around the online marking of essay-type student work. Arguments are provided why essay-type assignments are required and why current forms of online assessment are not sufficient to assess students Eknowledge and understanding. The paper then presents a requirement specification for an online marking tool, suggests a technical solution for such a tool and introduces a prototype application. The online marking approach is set into context of a university-wide project that deals with the administrative support structures required for handling the electronic submission of assignments on a large scale.
