This site is a key output of the Assessment@SCU project which was completed in early June 2018.

This site aims to provide practical strategies and guidance to support Southern Cross University teaching staff to design assessment aligned to the SCU Assessment Policy and related Procedures approved by Academic Board in 2017.

It is designed as a self-access resource for staff and as a stimulus for assessment discussions across Schools and Colleges.
Site content is structured around each of the seven principles of the Assessment Policy as shown in the image below. Key features of the resource are also highlighted.

The resource site is best viewed in Chrome using a PC. Future testing will involve mobile friendly access - when completed this will be announced via email and on this page.
