Product Update |  2017-10-06 | Cirrus Assessment

Announcing an extra -intermediate- release release filled with improvements. This release is mainly focused on Marking and Reports:

The release is planned for Friday October 6th at 7am CEST (check your local time here). There will be approximately 30 minutes of possible service interruptions due to migrations involved.

Marking just got a little bit easier: better on-screen notifications [NEW]

Finalising this round of improvements for Markers we've introduced better on-screen notification showing you how far you've come in submitting the scores before they can be published. We've added notification for when:

  • You are working on scoring, but haven’t completed
  • You have completed all the scoring, but your co-assessor and/or moderator is not yet finished
  • You have completed the scoring and your co-assessors/moderator is also finished

Example screenshot showing the assessor is waiting for colleagues before he can publish the results:
