Feedback and feed-forward are a critical part of the learning process. However, well-constructed, high quality, written feedback is challenging and time-consuming to produce. The growth in the number of students in higher education and ever-increasing student and management expectations has led to pressure on academics to produce higher quality feedback more rapidly. Against this backdrop, this paper introduces a system called AssessFlow that automates the process of generating accurate, individualised and repeatable feedback that is consistent across multiple markers. The paper will go on to reflect upon how the tool has been used on a number of large computing modules, its evolution and plans for future development.
