I've managed to get all my marking finished. It turns out that merely by changing the quality and quantity of the feedback provided to students, and doing nothing but marking whenever I wasn't in a meeting, I could make the deadline. It wasn't as if I had anything else to do over the whole of the Easter long weekend anyway (I could eat Easter eggs in parallel).
I was also helped by the fact that one in six students didn't hand anything in.
For CE217, 84/102 students submitted work to be marked, of which 8 came after the deadline.
For CE317, 53/59 students submitted work to be marked, of which 1 came after the deadline.
For CE817, 4/6 students submitted work to be marked, of which 0 came after the deadline.
Remarkably, out of the 141 assignments I marked, only two contained mis-spellings of the word "lose" or similar. These were among the first ten I marked, so I was rather worried that the practice might be more prevalent this year than usual. Fortunately for my overall Key Performance Indicator ratings, this was not the case.
Phew! I have some of my life back now.
