The aims of this research were to establish inter-marker reliability and how a mark is agreed between two markers, as part of a dissertation marking review. The ultimate aim was to decrease double marking workload from 100 to 25–30%, while maintaining an acceptable level of reliability. In cohort one (100% double marked), the intra-class correlation coefficient was 0.87 and in cohort two 0.73 (75% double marked, n = 18); and in cohort three 0.82 (25% double marked, n = 26). An already-established process of peer review of learning and teaching, in conjunction with developing communities of practice within research teams, is thought to have helped maintain the high level of reliability whilst achieving the aim of reducing double marking to 25–30%. There was no pattern with regard to how the mark was agreed between the two markers.
