Increased use of the Assessment & Progression Tool

The Assessment & Progression (APT) tool has been enhanced during 18/19

This project has

  • consolidated the use of the  Assessment & Progression (APT) tool across all the schools, including 7 new schools from  College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, and Schools of Social & Political Science and Informatics
  • stabilised the APT tool by resolving critical issues and addressing key business processes relying on APT

The reported benefits 

  • In the months Apr-Jul 2019:  ~65% in reduced processing time has been achieved
  • Improved user experience thanks to established user groups , and online communication with over 400 users
  • Excellent support during peak period


Thank you so much for all the support and diligence in helping us get through another exam board phase. I think we can all agree that despite the issues that people raise these are minor glitches in the grand scheme of things and one of the CAHSS managers yesterday was reporting that she had been required to step in to support boards in person this time round and was amazed at how much easier and better it was doing this task with APT!!
