NMIT aims to:
- foster best practice assessment procedures across the organisation that support students’ learning, inform selection and progression decisions, and ensure quality and accountability.
- create assessment systems and use assessment methodologies that are appropriate, practicable, inclusive, valid, and reliable, culminating in results that accurately recognise students’ achievements.
- provide a supportive teaching and learning environment that encourages reflective practice and continuous improvement.
- ensure that NMIT courses and programmes are credible to all stakeholders.
This document summarises assessment at NMIT, staff and student responsibilities, and principles underpinning effective assessment.
