Tabula 45 (Rhodium) - Friday 27th September 2013

Tabula version 45 (Rhodium) was released on Friday 27th September 2013. The main visible improvements and changes are:

Administrative notes on student profiles

Departmental administrators and students can now add notes to their student profiles. As per our policy with Tabula, this information is visible to the student as it pertains to them. Files can also be uploaded as part of these notes.

Paperless assignment feedback

It's now possible to fill in feedback for assignments completely within Tabula, without downloading feedback templates and re-uploading files. This also allows you to give "General" feedback to an assignment, which is returned to all students along with their individual feedback. Students can then download this as a PDF if they wish.

General improvements and fixes

  • It's now possible to link to lists of students from SITS who have not selected an assessment method for a module
  • Students enrolled on small group sets via SITS assessment groups now get correct lists on the /groups page
  • Going to /groups when not logged in no longer throws an error
  • The default email address separator has been changed from a comma to a semi-colon - this is configurable from the Settings link in the top right
  • Small group sets can now completely unlink from SITS data
  • Meeting records for tutors or supervisors will continue to display to students and administrators even when their tutor/supervisor is removed
  • A bug that made it impossible to edit an 'All years' attendance monitoring scheme has been fixed
  • Permanently withdrawn students will no longer appear in profile searches (it may take a few hours for searches to return results while this is re-indexed)
