How SRUC is Supporting Your Assessments this Year
Since January this year, SRUCSA has been working alongside SRUC to introduce a package of assessment support measures for students, in light of the current covid situation.
We are really pleased to say that SRUCSA has been involved in this since the get-go and at every step of the way. We hope this doesn’t come as much of a surprise! We really pride ourselves in the fantastic working relationship and partnership that we have with SRUC.
A side note from Amy – I entered my role as co-president thinking that it would involve a lot of pushback and being told “no” fairly often, but I’m happy to say that is really not the case. Of course, the answer isn’t always “yes” (at least not right away!) – there often has to be compromise. However, from my experience, many of the staff at SRUC really have students’ best interests at heart.
Students suggested some potential measures that they thought would be supportive in the current circumstances. Unfortunately, not all of these could be accommodated. However, we trust that the measures in place will support you in achieving a grade representative of all your hard work this year, taking into account the circumstances you faced along the way.
You can access the support measures and FAQs at this link – Student assessment support measures | SRUC. Please get in touch with your year tutor or programme leader if you have any questions.
The package of assessment support measures students see now are the product of many hours of work. This was through things like investigating other institutions’ policies, what other students’ associations achieved, many meetings and lots and lots of reading!
With that, we’d like to say a huge thank you to Kyrsten Black (SRUC Registrar), Karen Gray (Quality Assurance Lead) and Pauline Hanesworth (Head of Learning and Teaching) for all their hard work on this. Thank you to our class reps too, who gave us really valuable feedback and insight into what was important to them.
