New Features & Functionality


At SN@P, we are continuously looking to develop new features and functionality to ensure the overall online user experience is always improving.

Developments introduced over the last quarter include:

  • Additional Feedback options:

At SN@P, we are keen to ensure all past, present and future summative assessments have absolute validity. As part of this assurance, new feedback functionality has been introduced to restrict the access learners have to formal examination resources following their assessment.

In addition to the traditional feedback menu which allows SN@P Administrators to select whether or not they wish their learners to have feedback, what feedback the learners receive can now be specified:

  • Exam percentage only
    Learners receive their mark achieved only, either immediately after they have submitted their assessment or once results have been released.
  • Exam percentage & Incorrect Questions
    Learners receive their mark achieved and access to questions marked incorrectly for a two-week period following the release of results.
    Time stamp ensures learners do not have on-going access to examination resources which may be used for future assessments.
  • Exam percentage & All Questions
    Learners receive their mark achieved and access to all marked questions within their assessment for a two-week period following the release of results.
    Time stamp ensures learners do not have on-going access to examination resources which may be used for future assessments.

When 'summative' assessment is selected as the exam type, all system generated emails sent to learners either at the end of their assessment or once results are released will contain their exam percentage only. All learners are notified of when and how to access feedback for their summative assessment if it has been granted to them.

Assess Confidence & Understanding

This new feature aims to support feedback provided to learners and data captured by Education leads for future teaching sessions and exam preparation

Key benefits include:

  • Capture of trend data to help identify factors contributing to marks being lost
  • Feedback for learners to establish factors affecting their performance
  • Tailor future teaching sessions and exam preparation

Performance & Cause Analysis reports

Currently, Academic and Education leads can identify learners who have passed/failed assessments and view their completed and marked examination paper in 'assessments & results'

The new 'Performance & Analysis' report function enables registered SN@P Administrators to identify core themes and trends which provide an explanation for 'why' learners are losing marks when completing their assessment

The 'Performance' table identifies how your learners performed within each of the numerical sub-groups of their assessment.

Benefits

  • Identifies trends and key areas of concern or weakness
  • Helps to tailor future learning and teaching plans

The 'Cause' table helps to identify key reasons which may be contributing to 'why' learners are losing marks in specific areas such as IV Injection/Drip rate, Conversion or Percentage related questions.

Benefits

  • Captures data regarding the learner's confidence and understanding when completing assessments
  • Identifies key areas for improvement ahead of summative examination, i.e. confidence building or understanding numeracy in a Healthcare context

Use the 'Search' feature to report on a specific learners completed assessment

Benefits

  • Run a performance & cause analysis on individual learners as well as groups
  • Identify key reasons why an individual learner is losing marks and help to shape their future performance

Aligning our resources to support registrants with learning disabilities

At SN@P, we develop key functionality to ensure all of our resources are fully compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (2005). Key features which supports our compliancy include:

  • Enabling any of our registered learners or administrators to alter the size of the text on screen.
  • Enabling learners and administrator to receive an audio version of the question content when completing mock or summative examinations.
