Although we may wish to put a case forward for Computing Science to be exempt from such formal ethics procedures, funding bodies and universities typically insist that we seek the same approval as other disciplines for our experiments, including any use of human participants by our students during the course of their studies. We have introduced a simple, scalable ethics procedure for student assessment, that identifies ethical concerns, yet does not overwhelm the limited staff resources available for supporting this initiative. The process is based around a form of triage that filters the approximately 8000 assessments that are submitted annually. This paper summarises this procedure, discusses the underlying assumptions, and outlines the problems encountered.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
