Save time when correcting by designing a practical marking scheme before giving your students the task for an assignment or an exam.
Marking schemes can also provide model answers to ensure fairness and quality when correcting.
If the subject matter permits, write a model answer for each question.
This does not only help in assigning the marks needed for the level of the question, but also gives you an idea for the time needed to work out the question, especially for difficult questions and writing tasks.
Have a clear goal for each question.
Why do you want the students to answer this question? What am I testing through it? Make sure you do not assign questions randomly. For example, in a reading comprehension, one should test on scanning, skimming, opinion on the text and the language used.
