CEBE Guide to writing Assessment Criteria

This briefing guide provides advice and a worked example of how assessment criteria can be written to improve the quality of the student's learning.

Assessment criteria are a set of descriptions of what a student is expected to do to attain a particular mark.

Educationalists believe that carefully written assessment criteria not only assist in the marking process, but they also help to encourage students to adopt an appropriate approach to their learning.
