Kathryn Kendon, Deputy Director of Student and Academic Services, talks about the Assessment and Feedback Policy.


The purpose of the Assessment and Feedback Policy is threefold:

  1. To inform students of the expectations and processes around assessment and feedback activities at the University of Northampton.
  2. To support all academic staff in the design and facilitation of assessment activities and feedback approaches on taught programmes across the University.
  3. To outline, for other relevant staff and stakeholders, the assessment and feedback principles of the University.

The Assessment and Feedback Policy establishes a minimum acceptable level of assessment and feedback activity and helps to ensure that students achieve threshold academic standards. It promotes consistent management of assessment and feedback across all provision leading to an award or award of credit of the University of Northampton.

The Assessment and Feedback Policy and academic regulations that support assessment and feedback practice can be accessed online.
