Second Marking

In UK we have a requirement across the University Higher Education sector to use second marking as part of the academic rigour of assessment.

My question is this:

How do I set up second marking for an assignment?



  1. First instructor completes the marking of all student submissions in an assignment and gives grades and feedback.
  2. First marks are locked off so that they cannot be changed.
  3. Second marker is notified and can go in to speedgrader in the same assignment.
  4. Second marker can give their marks and feedback.
  5. Second Marker's grades are locked off
  6. Discussion/calculation of final grade to be awarded can take place
  7. Final (single, agreed) grade is awarded to student
  8. Final, single, agreed grade is made visible to student.


This process is very common to UK Universities and is a requirement of our operating procedures.

How do other Universities achieve this in Canvas?


Many thanks
