Assessment Types


We must ensure that students are assessed using different methods and engaged in a varied diet of assessment throughout their studies, relevant to their discipline and to the world of work beyond their studies. We would expect students to undertake a range of varied assessment types across modules and levels.

The type of assessment (each element) selected should be carefully chosen to relate to the learning outcomes at module and programme level. The type and amount of assessment should be carefully communicated to students at appropriate points in their learning, ensuring they receive clear guidance on the expectations for each assessment type.

Exploring the different categories of assessments below, programmes are expected to use a range of assessment types. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list.
