A Marked Improvement has been developed by a group of experts, working with the HEA to provide a strong rationale for transforming assessment in higher education. It includes an assessment review tool, offering a practical method to take stock of current practice and look to a targeted approach to strategic change. The publication also includes further resources for staff, which can be used to support changes to assessment policy and practice. The publication builds on established evidence and two decades of extensive support for teaching, learning and assessment in UK higher education, which has been provided by a range of organisations and inititiatives. A Marked Improvement is based on: - Assessment standards: a Manifesto for Change developed by the Assessment Standards Knowledge exchange (ASKe) at Oxford Brookes University; -Work from the Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Oxford Brookes University (ASKe) and the University of Northumbria (Assessment for Learning); -Previous work of the HEA, its former subject centres, the Learning and Teaching Support Network (LTSN), and the Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILTHE).
