Review of Assessment
The University is currently conducting a Review of Assessment led by Professor David Lamburn, Deputy PVC (Education) and work is ongoing in five sub-groups dealing with issues such as assessment strategies, academic integrity (plagiarism and cheating), mitigating circumstances, reasonable adjustments, progression requirements, remedying failure, timing of examinations and examination board procedures.
For the latest information of proposals emerging including timelines for implementation, please read the presentation to the wider University made on 11 April 2019 which you access here.
