Priority and Funding
The project priority is NORMAL.
The project is CORE funded and has been allocated College ring fence days. 80 days were set aside at initiation, the planning estimate is 38 days.
Impact and Dependencies
- There is no impact to any existing systems, as this project will deliver recommendations for the future.
- Several online assessment applications are currently in used across the College and University, i.e. STACK, ExamOnline, Speedwell, Practique, Question Mark Perception (QMP). There is also an ongoing procurement project, TEL068 E-Assessment Procurement and Implementation, within LTW to replace QMP. SCE was involved in the consultation and requriement gathering exercise, as well as having representatives on the project Board. This is an open procurement and GradeScope have been encouraged to bid. The outcomes of both SCE018 and TEL068 will inform and feed in the business case for any future provision of online marking tool within the College. One option is that the centrally provisionned tool meets all the College requirements. Another is that the central tool doesn't meet some of the specialist requirements identified by the College. In which case, the recommendations from the GradeScope pilot may help the College in building a business case to provide an online marking tool that met their specialised requirements.
- The project will require strong participation for the staff involved in the pilot, both professional services and academic staff.
- As a change in process, this project will impact on the staff and student experience of assessment and grading.
