2. Monitoring student progress on Macci
This article refers to reviewing of formative results on Macci. Full final result after final exams are released to the provider portal as per the timetable.
Having access to student formative results in order to monitor performance is integral in being able to detect the need for and implement student academic support. Macci allows providers - both face-to-face and distance - to access the results for formative assessments. This will enable providers to ascertain where a student's skills or knowledge may be lacking.
Providers will be able to access student results on Macci for the following auto-marked formative assessments:
- Learning Phase 1: Assignment 1 and Test 1
- Learning Phase 2: Assignment 2 and Test 2
The students Assignment 3 submission can be viewed on Macci. Assignment 3 is manual marked and the results will be made available once the PoE is complete and submitted for marking. Assignment 3 results are released at the same time as the final exam results (see the ICB timetable for relevant dates).
