Tabula 62 (Samarium) - Wednesday 12th March 2014

Tabula version 62 (Samarium) was released on Wednesday 12th March 2014. The main visible improvements and changes are:

Small Group Teaching monitoring points

When creating monitoring points, it's now possible to automatically link them to small group teaching events. This will mean that when a student is marked as having attended a certain number of events (set in the point), the point will also automatically be marked as attended.

General improvements and fixes

  • Departmental administrators can now see student phone numbers
  • Scheduled meetings with tutors and supervisors are now shown on the student timetable
  • You can now mark an assignment as a dissertation, which will exclude it from the 20-day feedback turnaround
  • We've added a new marking workflow for where each piece of coursework is marked by a single marker
  • Extension managers can now see all modules in a department so they can get to the extensions screen, and can also grant extensions that haven't been requested by the student through Tabula
  • Small Group Tutors who are postgraduate students will now see more information about students in groups they are the tutor of
  • We now display disability information in student profiles where a student wishes to disclose their disability to the University, and a student can also attach this to any extension requests
  • If you have permission over multiple departments, students in those departments will now correctly appear in profile searches
  • Scheduled meetings with students with multiple tutors are now correctly recorded with the right tutor
  • A bug that affected creating monitoring point sets has been fixed
  • Permanently withdrawn users should now no longer appear if they have been deleted from upstream systems
