key principles
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
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
