Assessment and feedback practices are at the core of higher education (HE). Assessment provides judgement so it needs to be valid and reliable. It also supports student learning and feedback, so it should be designed to promote desirable learning behaviours, and develop subject-specific and professional competencies, as well as other graduate attributes.
This framework is designed for all stakeholders; for educators, those in charge of policy, quality assurance, and quality enhancement, and those responsible for leading education at all levels from pro vice-chancellors to programme leaders. Its effectiveness can be optimised when implemented institution-wide and integrated into programmes.
The framework is part of the Essential Frameworks for Enhancing Student Success series.
