Proposals for a variation to the rules of assessment should be discussed with the Deputy Dean (Education) of the Faculty, the Assessment team, and Quality and Academic Development.
There are two approval routes:
- For minor or straight forward variations for new courses/modules approval is via the New Course approval route. The Deputy Dean may determine that a request needs to be considered by the Advisory Group on Rules of Assessment for possible submission to Education Committee and Senate.
- More significant variations and variations for existing courses would be considered by the Advisory Group on Rules of Assessment prior to submission for approval by Education Committee and Senate.
Approved variations should be reviewed as part of the annual update of all course and modules. All variations are also subject to monitoring by the Advisory Group on Rules of Assessment.
