The following changes have been made to the results view and layout for formative and summative assessments.
Students can now view their grade book on Macci. The grade book shows the students’ formative results including the results for Test 1, Test 2, Assignment 1, Assignment 2, and Assignment 3.
Assignment 3 only gets marked when the summative (final exam) exam is marked, which means that your results for assignment 3 will only reflect/show on the grade book on the days when results are released as per the published timetable. (Please refer to this link to see the timetable).
Please also note that the changes made to the grade book have not been applied retrospectively, which means that the changes are only effective from April 2021 and therefore only learners writing exams from April 2021 onwards will be able to see the new grade book which will show the full assignment results.
Students have always received their summative marks from their training provider (campus learners) or from the student portal (self-study and distance learners) and this remains the same. The summative results will NOT be accessible via the grade book or Macci.
The Detailed Results Report that students receive on the release of the results will now only show the final summative mark and the final formative grade. This means that there will no longer be a question breakdown on these reports.

Note that the mark for Assignment 3 will only be updated and be visible on Macci once it has been marked.
