Rules, Regulations and Guidelines for Good Practice

WelcomeUniversity Lake

Assessment is a very important part of your experience as a university student. The term assessment refers to a range of tasks that you will be required to undertake as part of your learning in a particular paper. Assessment tasks may be used for a variety of purposes. Broadly, assessment is a means of certifying that you have achieved the knowledge and competencies required in a paper or programme. At the same time, assessment is a primary teaching and learning tool. Whatever the purpose, assessment tasks should always be linked with the goals of a paper and the learning of paper content, competencies and methods of inquiry in your discipline. All assessment involves comparing your performance against a set of expected standards.
