This framework* has been designed by the HEA to support you with the process of transforming assessment. The HEA recognise it is time to significantly re-think assessment policy and practice, drawing on a wide body of scholarship and data to inform such changes.
Engaging in a process of transforming assessment can have a positive impact upon student learning, as well as on student satisfaction. It can help ensure that staff and students have a greater understanding of, and confidence in, academic standards.
We have designed this framework for a wide range of staff in HE, including those who teach, those tasked with changing assessment policy and practice as well as those responsible for quality assurance or enhancement, centrally or in particular discipline areas.
Adaptable and flexible to meet your needs
This framework, aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework, can be used in different ways and adapted to your particular context
We provide a complementary toolkit to help you apply it into policy and/or practice.
We also provide consultancy to support you to embed this or any of our other frameworks across your institution, faculty, department, programme.
