The assessment of student learning is a central activity of the University. It has an important role in motivating and shaping student learning. Through assessment students gain feedback on their learning and their academic achievements are judged and certified. The academic standards and the rigour of our courses are embodied within our assessment schemes and processes. At SCU, assessment practice is guided by the University's Assessment Policy.
