Cube_Assessment Cube_Assessment


The Assessment cube details the marks and grades students get on each of their module assignments.  In addition for Board Reporting purposes it holds module and stage marks.  These are accurate for individual students.  For higher level calculations Cube_Module and Cube_Stage should be used instead.
