Manual assessment in this case would require an assessor to log in, make a subjective 
evaluation of the answer, and submit some feedback and a grade. The student would then be 
able to see the feedback.

No, there's no fixed ceiling for different types of projects. You could have multi-choice 
exams with live feedback, and visualisations of where a student sits in teh cohort that 
could recieve very high marks. But if you did the bare minimum to meet the functional 
specification, even if you did it well, you should not expect a high distinction.

Does that make sense?
