1 introduction
1. Introduction

The Policy applies to ALL UEL programmes within the UEL Academic Framework

Principles of assessment:

  • based on learning outcomes
  • integral to programme design
  • fair and free from bias
  • valid, transparent and reliable
  • timely and incremental
  • demanding yet manageable + efficient
  • consistent
assessment criteria
Assessment criteria
  • Assessment criteria are helpful to students in that they enable the students to better understand what is expected of them
  • Assessment criteria are helpful to staff/ external examiners in that they are also clear on what is expected and they help to ensure consistency in marking
  • Try to avoid subjective terms such as ‘good’ or ‘poor’ when writing your criteria
  • Carefully constructed criteria can also encourage staff to use the full range of marks available.
changing marks
Changing marks
  • If, as a result of moderation, marks for pieces of work in the sample moderated are changed, then it becomes necessary to remark the whole group.
  • It is also necessary to second mark every submission for work where the assessment cannot be done anonymously e.g presentations, project work etc.
submission and deadlines
Submission and deadlines
  • Deadlines should not be set outside of normal university working hours to ensure support is available in the event of submission problems
  • Students who submit after the deadline but within 24 hours can have their work marked. In such cases you should deduct 5 marks as a penalty for late submission from the achieved mark (assuming marking is /100).
  • Work submitted more than 24 hours late should not be marked, however if it is within 7 days it should be retained in case the student is granted extenuation.

academic integrity at uel
Academic Integrity at UEL
  • The AI Policy ensures consistency of treatment and equality of experience for all students at UEL
  • Our responsibility to protect the credibility of the qualifications
  • The AI Policy is supported by policies on standard referencing and use of Turnitin + Academic Misconduct Regulations
  • Turnitin utilised as a text matching tool not a plagiarism detector
  • Identifying plagiarism is an issue of academic judgement, not a Turnitin percentage – no percentage is acceptable
