Assessment Manual and Certification Framework

The Assessment Manual will focus on an ECTS-compatible assessment scheme including performance criteria, assessment guidelines and the like. 

The Assessment Manual will incorporate relevant theories and core principles of assessment. It will:

  • set out the methodological framework
  • provide detailed guidance,
  • provide explicit Assessment (Performance) Criteria in relation to assessing online portfolios of evidence,
  • state requirements for Assessment Moderation,
  • provide Assessment templates
  • provide templates for the recording of and feedback from Assessments,
  • provide both guidance and statements of requirement for the institutions in relation to Certification.

The manual will address the role of the learner in both self-assessment and peer assessment and set out a protocol for the formal use of the outcomes from such assessment in the overall assessment process.
