QAA Code of Practice for Assessment Working Group

QAA

General Secretary Simon Felton sits on the QAA Code of Practice for Assessment Working Group which is reviewing and revising the Code.

As part of QAA's continuing work to revise sections of the Code of practice, drafts have been prepared with the help of representatives from higher education institutions and professional, statutory and regulatory bodies. These bodies have shaped the development of the code through round tables and through the involvement of the working group.

Following advice by the groups, guidance sections have been replaced with explanations indicating why the individual precepts are thought to be important.

The draft Code of Practice can be found on the QAA website:
