Previously users were imported manually into ExamSoft. With the new building block, users are populated in ExamSoft directly from select Blackboard courses. Subsequently, following an exam, ExamSoft administrators are able to push grades back into the Blackboard gradebook with the click of a button. This streamlines the workflow, as well as reduces the possibility of any error in data transfer, as Blackboard is fed directly from the ID vault.
At this time this functionality is currently being piloted with the School of Medicine first year courses.
