Principle 5 - The amount of assessed work should be manageable

The scheduling of assignments and the amount of assessed work required should provide a reliable and valid profile of achievement without overloading staff or students.

Assessment should be manageable both in terms of amount and timing. This is best achieved when module leaders across a programme collectively map learning outcomes and related assessment and negotiate the assessment schedule. Therefore assessment strategies for individual modules should not be decided in isolation but integrated in the wider programme design.
