Preparing for the award ceremony

  • pre-requisites

    • students are enrolled on the correct programme

    • students have handed-in their assessments

    • appropriate assessments have been (double-)marked [definitions available]

    • examining boards have made clear, consistent and equitable decisions

  • material to be covered

    • key principles for the examining board

    • inputting marks to CAMS

    • decisions, including borderlines

  • not in scope of this presentation

    • suspected unfair practice

    • mitigating circumstances

    • many details


Key principles

  • CAMS has been programmed to encapsulate UWIC regulations

  • CAMS includes PSRB requirements for specific programmes and “knows about” approved core modules

  • CAMS “suggests” decisions; the examining board makes the decisions

  • examining boards should make consistent decisions

  • examining boards have discretion (within the regulations)

  • if CAMS is not used for an examining board, then the “decisions” made are provisional until marks entered, calculations run and all chair’s actions completed

  • if a decision is made outside regulations, then no transcript can be provided to the student


Inputting marks to CAMS

  • please send your marks as soon as you have them to the Collaborative Provision Office

  • can input marks for individual assessments

  • good idea to get coursework marks entered as soon as possible, rather than leaving it to near the examination period

  • reports are available from CAMS, and more are being developed

  • help is available from School Registry Officers and the MIS Unit, and via the Collaborative Provision Office

  • a new student and academic information system is being commissioned


Decisions, decisions …

  • Pass and progress

  • Pass and award (a classification)

  • Compensate

  • Re-assessment

  • Re-take

    • a module, as first, second or (for undergraduate) third and final attempt

    • the year, as a first attempt (having failed 50% credits or more)

  • Trail a module

  • Defer decision (requiring a later chair’s action)

  • Fail: required to withdraw


Further information on examining boardshttp://www3.uwic.ac.uk/English/registry/exams/Pages/ExamBoards.aspx

  • borderline cases

  • compensation

    • within a module

    • across the profile

    • original mark is recorded on the transcript (mark is not “raised”; credit is awarded)

  • exit awards

  • training for examining board chairs (5th May)

  • Academic Registry staff attend all examining boards (School Registry Officers and colleagues in Assessment and Awards)

  • “emergency help” phoneline during the examining board period (extensions: 7030, 6039)

  • if in doubt, please ask us
