Assessment at Manchester Metropolitan University is an integrated and integral part of learning and teaching.
It is the principal instrument with which we recognise and reward student progress, provide motivation for further achievement, identify areas for development in both teaching and student learning, monitor levels of achievement and maintain academic standards and help to prepare students for professional life.
The University recognises the importance of both formative and summative assessment in the student experience and expects it to be integrated into all curriculum planning and to be directly aligned with intended learning outcomes. Assessment practice is informed by reflection and research across the university as well as by reference to external bodies and projects. The University has an Institutional Code of Practice on Assessment which sets out its expectations.This section of the website contains information for unit and programme leaders about each stage of the assessment design and implementation.
