Transforming assessment in higher education

Key projects, resources and ways you can connect with assessment and feedback

Assessment plays a vital role in HE. It is essential for measuring the extent of student learning (assessment of learning). Assessment should be designed in ways that promote student learning; whether learning the subject or broader level. Advance HE believes that attention to the methods of assessment and feedback and the use of self-assessment and peer-assessment, coupled with tenets, is fundamental to student learning.

Framework for transforming assessment

A shared point of reference for the sector

Our framework for transforming assessment in higher education is an integral part of the Advance HE frameWORKS series. Developed with the sector for the sector, the series covers key thematic priorities that impact upon the quality of teaching and learning in HE. Our frameWORKS provide a shared point of reference and common language to shape and review policy, process and practice in order to enhance student success.

“The Higher Education Academy frameworks are evidence-based and provide the higher education sector with a national reference point to enable the institution to develop its own approach according to local circumstances as well as benchmarking performance.” Universities UK (2016), p.73, Working in partnership: enabling social mobility.
