How to grade papers

Grading papers is always time consuming. The most important thing in marking work is the feedback provided to the student: what they actually did well, where they could improve, how to be a better writer. Of course, most students just want the bottom line.

I fell across this blog post which provides a method for grading essays; I've used this method before, and I look forward to the opportunity to try it -- and all the suggestions in the comments to the post -- starting next September.
