Assessment Cycle

Programmes of study are designed so that curricula, learning outcomes and assessment are aligned with each other, enabling reliable assessment with an effective learning experience. Assessment measures accurately and consistently, the extent to which students have achieved the learning outcomes for the programme.

When designing assessment strategies, staff should aspire to make the experience engaging, inclusive, developmental and fair, whilst being aware of the requirements of any Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies, and the value of authentic approaches in assessment design.
