If two subproject files contain the exact same marking guide they can be merged into one project file. This is useful when a project has been divided among multiple markers into subproject files, and must be merged back into one file. 


In order to merge two subproject files, one project must be already open in the program Marker's Assistant, this file is called the Active Project File. The contents of the second project file, called the Incoming Project File will then be merged into the (already open) Active Project File. Therefore when a merge is completed the Active Project File contains both its original contents, plus the contents of the Incoming Project File.

  1. Select from the four methods for handling duplicate students:






  1. Consider three additional options.





  1. Select the OK button.
