How to access assessment materials to carry out your External Examiner duties

​​​​​​From Summer 2019, all our External Examiners were given access a repository area within each BlackBoard Module called ‘Module Box’, where you can access all the necessary module materials/documentation/information, to enable you to carry out your role as an Externa​l Examiner, effectively and efficiently. You can access BlackBoard​ via​.


The following is a list of requirements (revised July 2020) for what the Module Leaders should include in the Module Boxes in line with TU expectations/policy:


·         Internal Moderation Pack

·         Sample of ICA work and feedback

​·         Additional information (as appropriate)


Please note that whilst the above list is a minimum requirement, Schools can place additional materials in the Module Box if they wish.  Schools will contact External Examiners individually on how they intend to manage assessments involving physical artefacts, where appropriate.       


The Module Box Guidance ​for External Examiners​ details how to access the Blackboard Module Box area. ​You will be unable to login until you have received your staff number following right to work checks and the submission of your personal details form.


If your Module Box(s) is empty, please contact the Module Leader in the first instances, followed by the relevant TU School contact​
