In Year Module Retrieval
In Year Module Retrieval 18/19
17/18 year the school participated in a further pilot exercise for IYMR. The idea was to allow students a rapid chance to retake an assessment, without the need for an exam board referral. It was hoped that this approach would improve retention and progression, which are important metrics within the Teaching Excellent Framework (TEF). Please follow links in docs for more information.
The approach was trialled across 17 BBS modules and involved 202 students who were eligible for IYMR. Of these, 50% chose to participate, and 69% (around 70 students) passed. The pilot was such a success, that the university have decided to roll-out IYMR across all L4 (first year u/g) modules.
THIS IS THE IMPORTANT BIT: The default position is that all L4 modules will be included in IYMR, and students will be informed via your Studentcentral module area (done centrally).
If you have reasons to exempt your module, you must fill out the forms below and send it to Lynne Palmer by Thursday 11th October to be considered by the School Quality and Standards Committee (squeak) on 17th October. “Exceptions will normally be considered for pedagogical and practical (e.g. timetabling) reasons, and PSRB requirements”. The cut-off date for IYMR is the end of teaching week 17 on 8th Feb 2019. Assessments after that date are exempt, but we still need to know about them, so please fill out the form giving reason: “Operational Reasons, assessment is after teaching week 17”.
Please could you send these forms to Lynne Palmer by Thursday 11th Oct, copied to Pete Mccullen
In Year Module Retrieval – 17/18
The pilot from last year is being extending to all modes of assessment including group work.
University deadline for retrieval work is midday on Thursday 29th March 2017, we can set earlier dates is again applicable.
The IYMR logo will appear on the modules and a new submission point will be added (please see Donna if you wish to have a different submission date)
Module taking part this year are DB150, DB155, EC102, EC104, EC161, EC163, FA164, FN142, HR173, LW161, LW187, LW188, MA162, MK190, MK190, ML160, ML152, ML89, ML195
This is a University wide pilot for students at level 4 = 16/17
It is an opportunity for students who are 1st year undergrads to retrieve failed work in selected module assessments, that have been identified by your School as participating modules in this pilot. In Year Module Retrieval offers the opportunity for you to retrieve a failed piece of assessed work without waiting for the end of year, when you would possibly be offered a referral.
We have a number of modules participating this year – HR173, EC161, LW161, ML101, ML195
