A new feature has been added to the Tests & Quizzes eTool, within iKamva. This feature allows the lecturer/facilitator to create ‘exceptions to time and delivery date’ of a specific online assessment. The exception re-opens assessments for one student; or a group of students – who did not previously attempt the specific test.
Previously, one would be required to create duplicate assessments with different opening and closing dates, to allow students to write and rewrite special or sick tests. Hence, the tool allows one to add these ‘exceptions’ without the need to create a duplicate assessment for each student, or group of students. This also means that all test results are recorded in one central space, saving the lecturer/facilitator time in retrieving results.
