An automated marking pilot scheme conducted at the University of Newcastle in 1997 has been extended in collaboration with Deakin University to include distance learners. The work is being carried out under an Australian National Training Grant for 1998-99. This paper describes the security and integrity strategies we adopt for automated assessment, and discuss the merits of authentication strategies for assessment processes in the on-campus and distance learning scenarios.
