Review 2014 - 2015
The Assessment Framework is based on the former QAA Code of Practice Section 6: 'Assessment of students' published in 2006. Following the revisions to the Academic infrastructure in 2014-2015, QAA guidance and information for HE providers is now set out in the three parts of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education (Quality Code).
The Quality Code Expectations and 'Indicators of good practice' relevant to assessment are largely contained in Chapter B6: 'Assessment of students and recognition of prior learning'. This chapter, plus Chapter A6: 'Assessment of intended learning outcomes' have superseded the QAA Code of Practice Section 6 'Assessment of students', and the Assessment Framework was replaced by the Assessment and Feedback Policy in November 2015 to reflect these changes.
