About this topic
The resources in this topic support staff with the marking of student assessments, as well as moderation activities that are designed to ensure appropriate marking standards are applied consistently and fairly.
Assessment requires careful management to ensure the quality of our teaching and feedback. It is important that the management of assessment is closely linked to assessment design in order for assessment processes and outputs to be well-aligned.
An additional and important part of managing assessments is preventing unfair practices in assessment, including plagiarism in work submitted for assessment.
