Abstract

Grading Student Achievement in Higher Education argues that there is a need to widen the assessment frame if the breadth of valued achievements is to be recognised adequately and meaningful information is to be conveyed to interested parties such as employers. Concluding with suggestions toward resolving the problems identified, the book will appeal to researchers, managers and policy-makers in higher education, as well as those involved in quality assurance and the enhancement of teaching and learning.
