Trouble shooting

If you unable to select your assessors name:

  1. Check that you have the correct spelling for your assessor’s name
  2. Contact your course coordinator as your assessor's name may not be in the system

If your assessor is not receiving the email to mark your work, try the following:

  1. Have your external assessor check their SPAM or JUNK folder in the email account.
  2. Have your external assessor do a search of their inbox for an email with the subject line Journal Sign-off Request from (Student Name).
  3. Have your external assessor complete a Lost Invitation Retrieval. This will require them to enter the email address that has been provided to your School by the external assessor.
  4. If still having problems contact the Library AskUs service for further assistance.
