Product update | June 8, 2018 | Cirrus Assessment

Cirrus Assessment Support Team -

On Friday June 8, at 07:00AM CET Cirrus will perform an update to it's assessment platform. This is a high impact release. 

Admins will need to check all Assessment Scales as soon as possible after this release

  • With this release we will change the way Assessment Scales are setup: they will have the pass mark percentage included.
  • Since currently there is no formal relationship between the two, an admin will need to check which percentage is the pass mark.
  • This is relatively easy but needs to be done manually. It is crucial to prevent confusion / mistakes by authors:
  • How? Go to Admin > Assessment scales, open them and check the right box.

Previewing / testing this change

We highly encourage you to preview and test this new functionality on cirrusbeta starting May 31 2018.

  • Authors will set the Assessment Scale and Pass Mark at a different place. These will be moved to assessment form level.
  • Authors will have improved insight into the scale and pass mark used.
