I?ve just received a letter from NAA informing me I am now not eligible for marking in the 2009 cycle! I was really quite surprised, as I did not to my knowledge fail any of the benchmarking, and last year was graded an ?A? on marking the same paper. Needless to say I am also quite annoyed and frustrated that I?m no longer able to mark next year as a result. My team leader had been quite open about the fact that marking accuracy was going to be a problem in the conditions in which many of us were marking. I have emailed NAA noting these concerns, the inconsistency of my grade last year with this year?s, and asking for the decision to be overturned, but I can?t help wondering if it?s all a bit of a lost cause really, particularly given the fiasco of the whole 2008 cycle. Does anyone have any advice or is anyone in a similar position? Do you think it?s worth pursuing further assuming I hear back from NAA?
