In the UBC Mechanical Engineering Department, we have recently shifted from using formal reports as our primary documentation process in our capstone design course to a 'design dossier' approach in which students document their work on a task-by-task basis. While this approach has significant benefits in terms of students learning how to document their design work on a routine basis, it has produced challenges in marking a wide range and volume of submissions from different teams working on
