A 'mini' Enhancement Theme, Integrative Assessment, was setup to follow on from work on the Assessment Enhancement Theme, which reached the conclusion that the relationship between formative and summative assessment was a significant issue in higher education.


Integrative Assessment focused on optimising the balance between formative and summative assessment.


We published four guides to support the work completed during this Theme.
