‘My Assessments’ – everything in one place

For the 2019/20 academic year, we have made improvements to the way you access information on Moodle in response to your feedback.

You can now find everything you need to know about your upcoming assessments in the ‘My Assessments’ area of the Moodle homepage, or by clicking on the ‘Coursework’ or 'Exam' tiles on MyMMU.

Coursework

Each ‘coursework submission area’ (that is accessed via the ‘My Assessments’ block in Moodle) will:

  • Include details of your assessments and how to submit them
  • Show all the key dates for your assessment submissions
  • Allow you to submit online or download a cover sheet
  • Allow you to access your provisional grades and assessment feedback

How and when to hand your coursework in depends on the type of submission:

  • For online submissions – you can submit your work as many times as you like before the deadline (you have until 9:00pm on the deadline date)
  • If you are handing your work in via the submission box – you will need to download and print your coursework cover sheet and attach it to your work (you have until 9:00pm on the deadline date)
  • For in-class and large item submissions or group work – please follow the instructions provided by your tutor

Once you have submitted an assignment, you will receive an email receipt and the coursework submission area will display a confirmation message, as well as the provisional mark and feedback once they have been released.

If you have missed the deadline, you can submit your work within five working days of the original date and receive a maximum-capped pass mark of 40% (Level 3-6) or 50% (Level 7).  

Please find out more in our Coursework FAQs or by emailing assessments@mmu.ac.uk.

Examinations

Details of your upcoming exams can be found by clicking on the ‘Exams' tile on MyMMU.

You can find out everything you need to know about your upcoming exam, including how to prepare for it and where it will take place, in our Examinations information document.
