dc.description.abstract Automated marking is heavily dependent on image acquisition and processing routines. Therefore ways of formatting examination and test papers were sought which allow for automated marking. Current marking machines utilise scanners to digitize answer scripts for marking purposes. These are more often than not, quite expensive. In investigating affordable ways of digitising answer scripts, the imaging device of choice was found to be a web camera. This was so because web cameras are readily available and are more affordable than scanners. This allowed the building of a prototype marking machine which was tested and performed as expected. en_ZA
