Student Partnerships in Assessment

Supporting the development of assessment models and practices within higher education institutions.

As the higher education sector continues to navigate through the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, our Student Partnerships in Assessment global member benefit initiative, launching in April and running through to June, aims to support Advance HE member institutions around the globe to engage in conversation about getting started with embedding student partnerships in assessment.

We invite all Advance HE member institutions to engage in dialogue about assessment in higher education, with a particular focus on the benefits and challenges of embedding students as partners in the development of assessment.

Member institutions will be contacted directly by Heads of Membership for staff and student representatives to take part in a series of synchronous and asynchronous online events, discussing contemporary and diverse thought leadership about embedding student partnerships in assessment. The outcomes of these discussions will facilitate a series of outputs, accessible to all colleagues at Advance HE member institutions.

The Student Partnerships in Assessment initiative is an Advance HE member benefit and is open to colleagues at Advance HE member institutions. Information on Advance HE membership can be found via the link below.
