What is BART?
BART is a web based system that manages the receipting and subsequent processing of written coursework.
Students see a schedule, in chronological order, of all the written assessment items due for submission in the current academic year. The student prints off a bar-coded cover sheet which they attach to their work prior to submission.
When items have been submitted the student can log back in and check the submission time. Late submissions are indicated, and there is a system for handling mitigation and extensions. The student can see what extensions have been granted and why.
On submission of the work, the bar codes on the cover sheet are scannned, identifying the item of work and the student. A receipt is printed and given to the student.
Following submission, there are tools for the onward management of submitted coursework: the distribution of work to markers; the collection and collation of marks; the sending of automated non-submission warning emails, and so on.
The cover sheet in most cases includes a 'feedback form' to be filled in by the marker (the layout of the form is tailored to individual schools, departments or modules).
The system was developed in 2004 in the college of Humanities but has since been adopted by all colleges across the whole of the University of Exeter in both the Exeter and Cornwall campuses.
