Tabula 2019.8.1 released

We released Tabula 2019.8.1 on Thursday 1 August 2019. This release features:

  • Accessibility improvements, including:
    • Help text and modals are available when you hover your mouse over or select an item. These are now also accessible using just the <Tab> and <Space> keys on a keyboard.
    • In the activity stream, the order in which items are selected when you move between them using the <Tab> key is now more intuitive.
    • Attendance notes are now easier to add using only a keyboard because the Absence type dropdown is automatically selected.
  • Other improvements, including:
    • We have added a checkbox to enable you to select / deselect all when you manually add students to a small group using a SITS query.
    • Markers can review their marking using the 'Review' button for each assignment on their Coursework Management homepage. This button is now available regardless of the marking workflow stage.
    • It's no longer possible for a student's university ID to be 'active' in Tabula when removed from central university systems before its inactivation date. For example, a student will no longer remain on a monitoring scheme for a department after transferring to a different department.
  • Security enhancements
  • Bug fixes, including:
    • Feedback audit pages for students on assignments with no workflow now display the current feedback, whether published or not.
  • Further work on the upcoming Mitigating Circumstances functionality.

Tabula 2019.7.4 released

We released Tabula 2019.7.4 on Thursday 25 July 2019. This release features:

  • Improvements, including:
    • You can now report your students' missed monitoring points from other departments to SITS. The 'View by student and report to SITS e:Vision' page within Monitoring Points now includes points from other departments for the selected students.
    • Students with a year abroad now see a year weighting of 0% for that year on the Modules page in their profiles.
    • Further accessibility improvements.
  • Security enhancements
  • Bug fixes, including:
    • The Modules page of students' profiles now shows the correct year weighting for each year. When year weightings change on a course for new students, existing students still see the weightings that were in place when they started.
  • Further work on the upcoming Mitigating Circumstances functionality.

Tabula 2019.7.3 released

We released Tabula 2019.7.3 on Thursday 18 July 2019. This release features:

  • Accessibility improvements, including:
    • You can now use the <Tab> key to move between filter options and onto all dropdowns. You can also activate the buttons in reusable groups using the <Enter> key. This makes Tabula easier to navigate using only a keyboard.
  • Other improvements, including:
    • When you edit a monitoring point and attendance is re-checked, you can now choose which suggested attendance changes to apply.
    • When a student moves to a different small group, we now use a new icon on the attendance page for any affected events. In the old group, appears for all events after the date of the move. In the new group, appears for all events before the date of the move. In both cases, we display explanatory help text when you select the icon.
    • On the Assignments page of a student's profile, staff members now see links to any assignment summary page they have permission to view. This applies when masquerading as the student or viewing the page as yourself.
    • We no longer display a default maximum word count for assignments when you only specify a minimum word count.
    • When a manually added student on a monitoring scheme appears in filtered results from SITS, we've made it clear that you can only remove them via the 'Manually added students' tab.
  • Bug fixes, including:
    • A student can no longer be assigned to two markers for a marking workflow stage that should only involve one marker per student.
  • Security enhancements
  • Further work on the upcoming Mitigating Circumstances functionality.

Tabula 2019.7.2 released

We released Tabula 2019.7.2 on Thursday 11 July 2019. This release incorporates:

  • Some bug fixes.
  • Various improvements, including:
    • The ability for markers and moderators to filter submissions based on the 'disability disclosed' flag.
    • Better performance of the Small Group Teaching attendance page when there is a large number of groups, students and events.
    • A departmental setting to pre-select "F" as the grade for a submission when the mark is 0.
    • Further enhancements to the accessibility of Tabula for those using only a keyboard.
  • A new feature in Small Group Teaching which enables you to link students to groups via a SITS query, rather than assessment components. The SITS query method is now the default and includes all students registered on the module for which the groups are created. Note that SITS linking will be re-enabled in Tabula on 1 August, for the start of the new SITS academic year.
  • Further work on the upcoming Mitigating Circumstances functionality.
