Exam Boards were introduced into the ECA Learning Management System (LMS) in 2012, since then there have been several releases to improve and extend the exam board functions in the portal.
This year another round of refinements are required to further improve and embed the exam board process in the portal.
- Change the grade aggregation method to encourage examiners to engage in the justification of a grade rather than accept the system calculated recommendation
- Update the XML/EXCEL export update mapping of grades results to match EUCLID convention (AN result)
- Remove the blue exam board process (external examiners board)
- Introduce an XML output of Degree Awards and Classification for upload into EUCLID
Dependencies and Constraints
With the changes impacting exam boards, the implementation of any change must be completed by the start of April. This is to allow training on the new features prior to the exam boards themselves in May.
