Progression Decision Entry

The Progression Decision Entry system allows the Course Director to submit academic regulation approved progression decisions directly to the Student Records System using an on-line application, reducing the risk of error and increasing the time available to academics for the submission of decisions. 

Each Faculty Board shall convene meeting(s) of its Faculty Examination Board to review student performance prior to the Academic Council Grading Committee meeting.  The Course Director, along with the rest of the Faculty Examination Board, shall decide on the progress of students within the marginal performance limits and submit these to the Student Records system once an agreement has been reached.  

(The Faculty Examination Board shall comprise the relevant Heads of Department, course directors, specialist faculty and appropriate faculty responsible for teaching the modules graded in the semester under consideration.  See section 4.3.2 of the Handbook of Academic Regulations and Procedures for further details).


Progression Decision Entry training will be offered in advance of the Autumn and Spring Progression Cycle.  

Each training session usually lasts approximately 30 minutes.  This training is aimed at Course Leaders who will be using the PDE system for the first time or Course Leaders who require a refresher course on the PDE system.

All course leaders will be invited to this training course through email. If you do not receive this invitation but are interested in attending one of the sessions please email for assistance. If you cannot attend the training session, you can download the Progression Decision Instruction Manual.
