    Abstract

    Subjectivity is an important issue in the assessment of final year projects. Naturally, students will want to be assessed by the more generous marker when given the choice between two assessors. Intuitively, if two assessors examine the same project and both feel that it is of the same standard then both should award it the same mark. However, this is generally not the case and often the marks awarded can be significantly different. This occurs because human beings naturally have different interpretations of the same thing. It is purported that fuzzy logic is adept at overcoming the issue of subjectivity. Thus, this paper explores the use of fuzzy logic in removing subjectivity from final year project assessment. A novel approach to the assessment procedure is outlined and some preliminary analysis is presented.
