Understanding IRP Student – Assessment Outcomes

Understanding IRP Student – Assessment Outcomes

March 30, 2022

The Integrated Renewal Program – Student (IRP Student) has numerous focus areas – following the student journey from application to graduation.  This series aims to explain each area, its unique requirements, and our designed solutions in terms you, our UBC community, will understand.    

Workday Student will replace UBC’s Student Information System (SIS). It will be the foundation for the renewed student information ecosystem, integrating with external systems - both existing and new - that are required to conduct operations at UBC.  

Assessment Outcomes involves the management of outcomes - or grading - of established forms of assessment (for example exams, quizzes, assignments, competencies, practicums) and graduate program assessments (theses and dissertations).  

This solution will require minimal training and provide users with access to enter or upload grades seamlessly at the end of each academic period.

The Assessment Outcomes design for the submission of final course section grades functionality will be hosted in the Business Process Management System (BPMS) as a point solution or newly created system, which is required when Workday Student or an existing application does not meet UBC’s needs.  

*Reflecting on our experience so far in working with Workday and seeing how our design is shaping up, we realize that we have to embrace change and be confident in our ability to adapt. Workday Student, along with IRP Student’s functional requirements, are evolving quickly and this could mean that we may have to adapt our approach throughout the project timeline.
