How to Assign Quotas

About: In SecureMarker, examiners are allocated candidate responses to mark. The number of candidate responses that each examiner is allocated is referred to as their quotas. These allocations are made and managed in the 'Quotas' screen. This article explains how to assign quotas to examiners.

Quotas can be assigned from within the 'Quotas' screen of SecureMarker. For more information about how to navigate the 'Quotas' screen, please see the article 'About the Quotas Screen'.

Step 1: Select an item and examiner

To set a quota for a specific examiner, select the item or item group that you wish to assign, then select the examiner that you wish to assign responses to.

To allocate items to more than one examiner from the 'Item View' screen, hold down the Ctrl button while selecting multiple examiners. You can assign multiple items to a specific examiner from the 'Examiner View' screen using the same process.

Step 2: Set a quota for specific examiners

Once you have selected the relevant item(s) and examiner(s), select the 'Edit Quota' button.

A pop-up will show the total number of unique responses that are not yet assigned to an examiner. The 'Quota' field will be pre-populated with the existing quota (provided the existing quota is the same for all selected examiners).



Enter the total number of responses you want to assign to the selected examiner(s) in the 'Quota' field. Any existing quotas will be overridden by the new quota entered here.

Alternatively, tick the box next to 'Unlimited Quota' if you don't want to restrict the number of items the examiner(s) can mark.

Step 3: Set the quota for all available examiners

To set a quota for all of the examiners, select the item or item group that you wish to assign. Next, select the 'Set Quotas' button.

A pop-up will show the total number of unique responses that are not yet assigned to an examiner.



Enter the number of responses you want to assign to the available examiners in the 'Quota' field. This will override any existing quotas.

Alternatively, tick the box next to 'Unlimited quota' if you don't want to restrict the number of items the examiner can mark.
