Product Update |  2017-12-26 | Cirrus Assessment

Announcing a low impact release, improving and expanding on existing functionality:

The release is planned for Tuesday December 26th at 7am CET (check your local time here). There will be approximately 60 minutes of possible service interruption due to migrations involved.

Marking: changing the flow moving from Results to Completed tab. [IMPROVED]

Based on customer feedback we will change what is shown under Marking on the Results and Completed tabs. 

We got feedback asking us why there was a difference in listing and asking us to move the published results to the completed tab. This is why we will change this:

  • Marking > Results will show only unpublished results.
  • Marking > Completed will show all published results per candidate

How does this change things? Currently the results tab shows all results (published and unpublished) listed per candidate. Also: the completed tab currently shows an overview per schedule title once all results for that schedule have been published.

Search boxes for Collections and Assessment overview [IMPROVED]

As promised with this release we will introduce the standard search boxes for searching items in collections and for searching Assessments.


Furthermore: using the search box you can now search for labels using standard parameters like AND, OR and NOT. Examples:

  • Search for an item that has both labels: Label:A AND Label:B
  • Search for all items that do not have a certain label: NOT labels:B

Marking: information on mouse-over for Coordinators

After extending the statuses show to Marking Coordinators, we will now add more information upon mouseover: this will show the coordinator exactly how many candidate in the schedule still need to be marked, moderated or published by the publisher assigned.
