ELECTRONIC MARKING IS MAKING PROGRESS

The Caribbean Examinations Council started using electronic marking, also known as e-marking, during the May-June 2013 marking exercise.  E-marking facilitates the assignment of electronic scripts to examiners and the marking of these scripts in an online environment instead of relocating to a physical location. The process started with two subjects at the Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate (CSEC) level.  Since then, the process has not only seen an increase in the number of subjects and paper components being e-marked but has also expanded to the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) as well as to the School Based Assessments (SBA).
