Role of assessment in teaching & learning

Assessment is the process of judging the quality of student achievement. It influences how students focus and approach their learning.

An important aspect of assessment is that it should encourage a 'deep' approach to learning by students' own activity and engagement. It should also develop their ability to independently evaluate the quality of their work.

Our policies and guidelines provide the framework for assessment. For further information, practical advice and examples see the University's Assessment website.
