What is Study Goal?
Study Goal is a tool we use to record your learning analytics data. When you use Blackboard or other university digital systems, you leave behind a digital footprint. This data combined, with your grades and past academic history, can be used to support your learning journey and help us improve student experience and engagement.
From September, all undergraduate and postgraduate students will be asked to record their attendance for taught sessions using Study Goal to support their studies. You can read details about this in the Student Attendance and Engagement Policy (PDF, 167.9KB).
How do I use Study Goal?
You log into Study Goal here. In Study Goal you'll be able to record your attendance or check your activity on Blackboard. To record your attendance at a session, enter the 4 or 5-digit code provided by your tutor into the ‘Checkin’ section of Study Goal.
Your tutor might ask you to record your attendance for a normal taught session, or for a one-off meeting that you attend.
All of this will be saved so you can view your engagement with your course.
