Session A: Galway's Journey with the Grade Journey Tool

Embed

  1. Sharon Flynn from NUI Galway, provided an overview of the decision to investigate use of the Grade Journey Tool within Blackboard to automate grade transfer from Blackboard to the Student Record System. The project went live in December 2015, and in May 2016 99% of marks were returned to the Exams Office by the deadline (the first time ever!).
  2. Despite the overall success NUI Galway has had with using the Grades Journey Tool, this session has highlighted that the tool requires a lot of forethought and requires careful mapping of both assessment processes and the data held in Student Record Systems.
