Abstract: The University of Northampton made the decision to move to e-submission and feedback for the 12/13 academic year across all year groups. Throughout piloting we faced challenges ranging from determining best tools to accommodating practices specific to faculties and departments within the institution. We are now looking to further integrate the student record system with Blackboard to enable us to transfer data both ways. This will ultimately mean that academic staff can spend less time undertaking administrative processes, as the electronic transfer of information means that data can be passed between systems and departments more accurately and in less time. We are now facing challenges in accommodating administrative processes attached to assessment. As the institution becomes more reliant on data, how do administrative teams manage the transition to electronic assessment processes and ensure the accuracy of that data? How do we ensure that everything we put into place is auditable? What part does Blackboard play in these processes? In this session I will talk about practice we have already put into place at Northampton, and ask for participation and discussion from attendees about how others have dealt/plan to deal with similar situations.
