Jisc and UCISA have been working with universities to develop a statement of requirements to help suppliers understand the needs of UK higher education in relation to the electronic management of assessment (EMA).
We have created a template for suppliers to respond to those requirements to help universities better understand the ways in which particular systems can support their needs and to see how particular combinations of systems might work together. The template is based on our assessment and feedback lifecycle.
We are now issuing an open invitation for suppliers who support the electronic management of assessment to respond and complete this template, by Friday 5th February. The downloadable template is attached to this blog post.
The template is being shared with all of the major suppliers of student record systems and learning platforms in the UK as well as suppliers of the most commonly used assessment related products. We welcome participation by any other interested suppliers. Please email your responses back to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope the template is self-explanatory but feel free to contact us with any queries.
Responses will be published on this blog to help universities making system decisions. The full responses will be available to download and we will also compile an overview table which will pull out all supplier responses to the ‘included’ column.
Suppliers will be encouraged to update their initial responses as new product versions are released.
