Assessment was one of the first Enhancement Themes launched in the autumn of 2003. The Assessment Enhancement Theme focused on two aspects of assessment:

  • efficient assessment that does not take up too much time for students or staff.
  • effective assessment that produces results that are informative, valid, fair and robust.

Workshop series

We ran a series of assessment workshops designed to reach a broad audience of staff and students, aimed to:

  • identify key issues and problems
  • share and develop good practice in learning and teaching in higher education at institutional level
  • develop strategies to support the enhancement of learning and teaching across the sector.

We published a Theme overview report and two workshops outcome reports.
