Assessment Policy 2016

Published: Monday 14th December 2015

The current Assessment Policy and Procedures will be repealed and replaced with the revised Assessment Policy, Procedures and Guidelines and Information for Students and Staff on Supplementary Assessment on 1 January 2016.

The policy revision has taken 12 months and an extensive consultation process has been undertaken before final approval was granted by Academic Board on 2 December 2015. The revision was conducted in the spirit of continuing to support good practice in assessment at ACU with a strong outcomes focus.

The new documents will be available in the University Handbook and the link accessible through the ACU Policies website from 1 January 2016.

Staff should use the updated Extended Unit Outline Template when preparing their courses for 2016.  Please see the Learning and Teaching Centre website for the 2016 Extended Unit Outline Template. Support for staff in implementing the new Policy will be provided by the Learning and Teaching Centre and the Faculties.
