Assessment literacy

One of the key principles of ARU's Assessment Protocol relates directly to fostering assessment literacy. This commitment is also reflected in our Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy 2015–17. Students' assessment literacy is developed through a combination of induction and tutorials, self- and peer-assessment activities and continuous dialogue with staff and their peers.
