This inclusive teaching guide is aligned to Baseline Standard 1, 3 & 4 and the Professional Standards Framework A3. It provides guidance on how you can mark work and provide feedback inclusively, in line with the Institutional Assessment Strategy.
Please note- The University’s Inclusive Marking Policy has been replaced with the Policy on Assessment of Written English for 2022-23
All forms of assessment require particular skills and competencies. For example, timed unseen exams often require memory recall, and oral presentations often require students to speak in front of others. This can put some students at a disadvantage. In the case of assessment via writing, some students will find it harder than others to demonstrate their learning. It is therefore important to be clear about the expected standard of the written English and support students wherever possible to understand and meet this standard. Consistency and clarity among staff involved assessing work is also vital.
