The Core Systems Work Stream held a fourth breakfast briefing for all Programme Administrative colleagues today. Nearly 60 members of staff from across the institution were able to join us for breakfast cake and coffee to hear Kat Lee, Project Manager for the Core Systems Work Stream, outline progress during this enormously busy period.
Kat and team have been working hard to implement new functionality in RISIS. Supported by Programme Administrators and Exams colleagues, all final testing has been completed and we are now ready for the go-live of sub-modular marking in the last week of November, covering undergraduate modules. A ‘Turn Around Time Tracking’ screen for 15 day feedback and marks return is now live for undergraduate summative assessment and will be accessible to SDTLs via reports shortly. We are in the very final stages of creating the updated extenuating circumstances workflow, allowing students to submit ECFs online via RISIS much more easily. We are now using the RISIS helpdesk to manage support queries and provide FAQs, while continuing to provide training to Programme Administration colleagues.
Siobhan Crathern, Project Manager of the eSFG Work Stream, outlined progress in online submission, feedback and grading within Early Adopter schools and explored the impact of the 2018/2019 roll out on Administrative colleagues. Siobhan will be taking over from Kat as lead for the Core Systems Work Stream in January, looking holistically at the marking journey from Bb/Tii through to RISIS.
