Assessment Design

Assessment is a core element of teaching for both educators and students and is recognised as a key driver of student learning. The resources on this page are designed to support excellence in assessment practice in Higher Education.

There are a number of key principles underpinning assessment and feedback practices at MIC, as guided by MIC's Assessment & Feedback policy

  1. Assessment should be accessible, fair and transparent
  2. Assessment should be valid, reliable and consistent
  3. Assessment should be guided by a programme-level/departmental approach
  4. Feedback/feed-forward is an integral part of assessment and learning
  5. Good practice in assessment and feedback should be supported
