Guidance for External Examiners

There are a few different ways that External Examiners may be provided with samples of student work and marking done, including the External Examiner tool in Blackboard; directly via the Grade Centre in Blackboard; Sharepoint; hard copies in the post, or at the actual scrutiny day. This guidance covers samples provided or work accessed through Blackboard.

  1. Module Leader directs External Examiner to the Grade Centre to view the submissions and marking done directly

    If you have been asked to access specific student submissions via the Grade Centre, the guide below explains how to do this:
