This research compared efficiency and effectiveness of rubric- and comment-based marking and feedback in an online submission system. Two comparable assignments of a computer science module were graded by two tutors. Feedback was provided through BlackBoard rubrics for the first and TurnItIn QuickMark for the second assignment. Semi-structured interviews about marking experience and feedback quality were conducted with tutors and students and analysed for common themes. Results show that tutors found rubric marking easier and more effective, while students emphasized the importance of general feedback quality, specifically constructiveness, without showing a preference for either format.
