Join the CLT for a tea break virtual drop-in

Over the coming weeks, we will schedule a series of virtual drop-in sessions . Each week we will focus on topics that reflect frequently asked questions to the team.

These short sessions are targeted basic quick-start introductions and demos for staff on key issues and online technologies, with an opportunity to ask questions throughout on the chat and a Q&A at the end.

Please see the catch-up tab for recordings of this week's sessions.

CLT Virtual Drop-in: Moodle-SAMIS Grade transfer Q&A

Tuesday 02 June 11:00-11:30 

If you have recorded marks in Moodle (option 2) or completed your marking online (option 3) for alternative assessments, if you are the course convener, you can use the Moodle-SAMIS Grade Transfer tool to transfer marks from Moodle to SAMIS. You may also wish to use the tool for transferring coursework marks recorded in Moodle.

You can enable Grade Transfer at any time before you wish to transfer grades (it does not have to be enabled before you start marking).

You can access guidance on how to use Moodle-SAMIS Grade Transfer, including a step-by-step screencast and how-to guide (pdf)

Bear in mind that grade transfers can take a while to process (particularly during periods of high activity), so it is important that this task is not left until the last minute before any Exam Boards.

Note if you have carried out marking offline for alternative assessments (option 1), liaise with your local Programme team to arrange for marks to be entered directly into SAMIS via a .csv file

Pre-session activity

We are not able to demonstrate grade transfer in a live demonstration as it relies on assessment mappings between Moodle and SAMIS.

Before the Drop-in session please view the guidance material

During the Drop-in we will run a Question and Answer session to answer any queries you have about Moodle-SAMIS grade transfer.
