QUB Assessment Handbook
This Handbook provides an essential reference point for programme and module leaders, particularly in relation to assessment planning and design. The guidance within outlines the preferred practices of the University and draws upon the regulatory framework of the University. The Handbook should be read and consulted by all staff who engage with student learning. The guidance will provide clarity around areas of our practice to ensure a transparent and consistent experience for our students. The Handbook is also made available to students.
This guidance applies to all primary degree courses offered by the University. Where individual programmes are required to have stricter regulations by validating/accrediting bodies, these will be stated in the programme regulations and will take precedence over the Study Regulations. The Handbook does not deal with the assessment of research degrees.
