Assessment Research Centre

The Centre focuses on improving assessment and reporting through a four-step process of research, publications, development and teaching. These provide the framework for strategic planning by the Centre and guide the Centre's core business as well as its link to the University's mission.

Research that leads to change, strategically affects change, or sets up the basis for change and improvement in assessment, forms the focus of the centre's work.
