Generic Assessment Criteria – new QAA guidance.

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, the QAA, has issued new guidance on degree outcome descriptions for Level 6.

At BU, the Centre for Fusion Learning, Innovation and Excellence (FLIE) and Academic Quality are reviewing the wording of the current BU Generic Assessment Criteria to ensure they are in alignment with this new guidance. This is an opportunity to refresh the wording of the current criteria, approved by Senate in 2016, to provide greater clarity.

If you would like to contribute by offering constructive suggestions please send your comments to Anne Quinney in FLIE by 24th February. A paper on the proposed updates will be discussed at the March meeting of Academic Standards Committee.
