Programme Assessment Strategies

Definitions: Types of Programme Focused Assessment

After much debate, and based on the examples emerging, the project team has determined four key types of programme focused assessment, each with their own variants, and defines them as:

Assessment by submission of personal evidence against programme learning outcomes:

In order to pass the programme, students must submit work (often in the form of a portfolio) which demonstrates that they satisfy all the learning outcomes which have been specified at programme level.

[Back to case studies]

Final, heavily weighted integrative assessment:

As a major (but not necessarily the total) part of the final programme assessment, students must complete assessments that demonstrate they satisfy all the learning outcomes which have been specified at programme level.

[Back to case studies]

Integrative level/year assessment:

As part of the overall programme assessment, students must complete assessments that demonstrate they satisfy all the learning outcomes which have been specified for one level/year of the programme (horizontal), or more than one level/year of the programme (vertical).

[Back to case studies]

Integrative semester/term assessment:

As part of the overall programme assessment, students must complete assessments that demonstrate they satisfy all the learning outcomes which have been specified for one semester/term of the programme.
