The project 

Over the next three years, the EMA programme aims to deliver on the University’s long term vision for online assessment - including online submission, grading and feedback. 

It has three key objectives:

  • Enabling a consistently good student assessment experience
  • Providing an improved and supported assessment experience for staff
  • Reducing the administrative burden of assessment for the University

To deliver a consistent staff and student experience, it will support the continued move towards online submission, marking and feedback of assessed work; the underlying integration between Blackboard and RISIS; the creation of a student feedback dashboard; and, support further developments in our approach towards learning analytics.

Please e-mail if you have any enquiries.
