Graduate students and relevant staff now have access to Graduate Supervision Reporting (GSR), which replaced the old Graduate Supervision System (GSS). The second supervision reporting period is now underway, and research students are creating their Training Needs Analysis forms within GSR.
Replacement of GSS provided an opportunity to implement the process changes intended to improve reporting participation and quality, as approved by the Education Committee following a consultation exercise with the collegiate University. Technical improvements have also been made to eliminate the downtime and data problems previously associated with GSS.
Adjustments to the reporting schedule came into effect at the start of Michaelmas term, to facilitate changes approved by the Education Committee. Changes include a new fourth reporting window in the Long Vacation, which is mandatory for research degrees, and optional for postgraduate taught degrees (as defined by departments).
Details are on the GSR in eVision page.
