The policy provides a comprehensive statement of the principles and processes that guide the
development and management of student assessment within ESTYA Education.
It is therefore an essential reference point for course teams, particularly in relation to the design
of assessment strategies at course and unit level, and the quality assurance of assessment from the
approval of assessment items to the marking, standardisation and moderation of student work.
The policy indicates the matters for which responsibility is devolved to course teams - usually
within a framework of minimum requirements, and the matters for which the policy and processes
determined by ESTYA Education apply.
