How quickly should assessed work be returned to students?

For all assessed work, the 4 week maximum turnaround is a universal requirement, where 4 weeks equates to 20 University working days and does not include either statutory or customary days communicated by the Registrar to Heads of Departments on an annual basis.

If feedback from submitted work is designed to be formative towards performance in a subsequent assessment (including an examination), then the calendar of submission/return of coursework should be such as to ensure that the student has a realistic opportunity to reflect their learning from that feedback in the subsequent assessment.
