Higher Education Academy framework for transforming assessment

A shared point of reference for the sector

Our framework for transforming assessment in higher education is an integral part of the HEA frameWORKS series. Developed with the sector for the sector, the series covers key thematic priorities that impact upon the quality of teaching and learning in HE. HEA frameWORKS provide a shared point of reference and common language to shape and review policy, process and practice in order to enhance student success.

“The Higher Education Academy frameworks are evidence-based and provide the higher education sector with a national reference point to enable the institution to develop its own approach according to local circumstances as well as benchmarking performance.” Universities UK (2016), p.73, Working in partnership: enabling social mobility

Higher Education Academy assessment framework audit

A powerful diagnostic tool

A HEA assessment framework audit is a diagnostic tool helping you determine where you are on your journey towards successfully embedding this core priority. Aligned to our HEA transforming assessment framework, a completed audit is a powerful tool that provides:

  • An overview of the scale of implementation at institution, faculty, department, programme and/or individual level
  • A self (or peer) assessment tool to promote staff engagement in the enhancement of assessment policy and practice
  • Evidence to build a case for excellence in learning and teaching
  • A benchmark from which to evidence progress and plan for the future
  • A dialogical tool to prompt reflection, debate and discussion of key issues in assessment
  • The means to identify areas for future consideration.

Benchmarking Best Practice

Gain a clear picture of where you currently stand

Working in collaboration with other higher education providers to identify common challenges and share best practice can be transformative when addressing issues in assessment and feedback, which in turn can improve student learning outcomes and satisfaction.

Benchmarking Best Practice brings higher education providers together to identify common challenges and share learning and best practice. This collaborative programme involves an initial audit exercise to help you understand your issues in context as well as highlighting areas of concern. Networking, bespoke and targeted supported will then develop your expertise in designing interventions that inform your planning and development of your assessment strategy and practice.
