Effectively marking essays (on writing skills)

>Yesterday we were discussion possibilities with our Faculty of Arts on software to enhance marking and grading of essay-type text documents. Making it easier to mark large numbers of documents. I posted the list below to take into consideration.

1
Stand-alone tools, for example Markin.

C

Question
Do other people know software that can aid in executing Marking and Grading jobs more effectively? For example, what software is available to score essays with rubrics? See for example http://www.shambles.net/pages/staff/rubrics
