This paper introduces an innovative bespoke Android App used for in-class assessment in order to help lecturers to provide marks and feedback easily and efficiently. This work was inspired by Personal Development Programme (PDP), a module designed for the Joint Programme (JP) students between Queen Mary, University of London and Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications . The PDP is a compulsory module in the first three years of JP and includes a mix of skills and activities like presentation and public speaking, team working, and technical writing skills. In order to solve the issue of the delay from when the presentation is assessed to students getting individual feedback, a mobile app is developed to allow lecturer type comments and give marks during the assessment, and the saved comments and marks can be distributed to students without further delay. The MarkUP app has been tested in PDP in-class assessment and improvement areas have been identified. Future work aims to fix application bugs and streamline information import and export between the app and the existing VLE system.
