Provisional marks

You can publish or unpublish provisional item or assessment marks to students during the year so they can view their progress.

This process will not calculate or publish the final course results, only the item or assessment marks you select. 

Publish provisional marks

The level of marks you can publish depends on the assessment type and structure.

Coursework assessment types

If the assessment has NO components and items underneath you can publish the provisional marks once they have been entered. The assessment mark and grade will be displayed to the student once published.

If the assessment has components and items, you'll only be able to publish the item marks. Even if the component and assessment marks have been calculated, these won’t be published until the overall course result is.

Exam assessment types

Only the overall exam assessment mark can be published to the student.

If the exam has NO components and items, you can publish the provisional marks once they have been entered.

If the exam has components and items, you need to calculate the exam assessment mark before it can be published. Only the overall exam mark/grade will be published to the student (not the components or items).

You can calculate the course results even if marks are missing

If you need to calculate the course results in order to publish an exam mark, you can still do this even if marks are missing for other assessments. 

In this case the overall result won't be correct yet but it can be recalculated once all the marks are in.

When you press calculate any missing marks will automatically be populated with "did not attempt". 

You can find more information on entering and calculating marks at the following links:

What will the student see?

The student will find their marks published on the "Assessment" tab of their EUCLID Self Service Portal.

They'll see the item or assessment marks you published along with a clear statement that the marks are provisional and subject to change. Here's a copy of the message:

Screenshot of the provisional marks prompt on the student view of assessment. It reads "The marks shown below are provisional and are subject to internal and external moderation. They may be modified up or down and will remain provisional until they have been ratified by the Board of Examiners".

You can see an exact copy of what the student sees through the Student Hub - go to Student view for more guidance.

Unpublish provisional marks

If provisional item or assessment marks need to be unpublished you can do this through the same screen and a similar process.

Unpublishing will remove the selected item or assessment marks from the view of all students on the course.
