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.
