Assessment Policy

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.  It also provides a glossary of specialist terms relating to assessment, and useful internal and external document references for assistance and guidance with assessment matters.
