assessment boards
Assessment Boards
  • Two-tier system for the determination of marks and results:
    • First tier: Module Assessment Board (MAB) considers module performance and determines the mark
    • Second tier: University Assessment Board (UAB) considers the progress of students through awards and end of session results (for continuing students)
    • Academic standards matters should be discussed initially in the MAB and brought to the attention of the UAB.
module assessment boards regs f11 7
Module Assessment Boards [Regs F11.7]
  • Confirm the marks to be awarded for each module.
  • Consider and make recommendations to the second tier board on the operation of condonement or discretion.
  • Consider and make recommendation on failures, malpractice, special cases and deferred assessment to the second tier board.
  • Identify and consider standards issues arising from the assessment exercise.
  • Special consideration of 20% failure rate.
  • Special consideration to mean and standard deviation.
module assessment boards
Module Assessment Boards
  • Prior to the MAB, External Examiners must have:
  • Completed the moderation of all modules for which they are appointed.
  • Confirmed that marking standards are accurate.
  • Liaised with the Head of Department or Programme Leader as appropriate, on recommendations for fails or special cases.
  • Communicated to the Head of Department or Programme Leader on appropriate comments they wish to draw to the attention of the Board.
mab mark sheets
MAB Mark Sheets
  • Mark sheets will include:
  • The weighting of each item of assessment within the module.
  • For each student, the raw marks for each component of the total assessment, and the total module mark (calculated in accordance with the validated weighting scheme).
  • The mean mark per cohort and the standard deviation demonstrating each of the component marks and how the overall mark has been arrived at.
  • In the case of courses containing a professional element, professional performance should be included.
  • For reassessment, both the initial and resit marks (both actual and capped marks).

University Assessment Boards [F11.9]
  • The UAB considers the profile of marks for each continuing and completing student.
  • University Award External Examiners are required to attend UABs and will be invited accordingly.
  • For continuing students the UAB:
  • Confirms the results for each student in relation to progress through the programme.
  • Exercises condonement provisions in accordance with Regulations. (Reg F14 and F15)
  • Resolves fails, deferred assessment, malpractice and other special cases.
university assessment boards
University Assessment Boards
  • Undergraduate programmes offer two reassessment opportunities, unless professional body requirements prohibit this or a programme has specifically validated a programme to only allow one reassessment.
  • Postgraduate programmes offer one reassessment opportunity.
  • Providing there is no conflict with a PSRB, the UAB has discretion to approve an exceptional third reassessment opportunity (second opportunity for postgraduate level) where there is a reasonable chance of successful completion and within the limits of 1 x 20 credits at each Level.
  • Part-time deferred status is implemented when a student does not have enough credit to progress to the next level of study.
  • An Assessment Contract will be required for any student with 40 or more credits in reassessment or 2nd reassessment.

  • For finalists the UAB:
  • Identifies the final award outcomes. (Regs H3-H7)
  • Applies approved rules in relation to borderline cases and determines the final award.
  • Ensures comparability of treatment for students in the interpretation of the Regulations.

University Assessment Boards
  • Award classifications are calculated on the arithmetic mean of module marks achieved as follows:
  • Honours Degree
    • Level 4 marks are excluded
    • Level 5 and Level 6 marks are weighted 30:70
    • The weakest 20 credits is discounted
    • Where the mean percentage mark (MPM) is less than 2% below the next higher classification and at least 100 credits are in the higher band the student will be awarded the higher classification.
  • Top-Up Degree
    • All marks contribute towards the MPM
    • Where the MPM is less than 2% below the next higher classification and at least 40 credits are in the higher band the student will be awarded the higher classification.
