An Assessment Contract is a document that needs to be completed for any student:

  • with more than 40 credits in reassessment or deferred assessment;
  • with a second reassessment;
  • who has had an Adjudication Hearing or Fitness To Practice Meeting;
  • who has had a case of confirmed major malpractice that has resulted in reassessment.
  • When will an Assessment Contract be completed?

    Results will be confirmed by the University Assessment Board and released to you by email and on ICON. You will be contacted by your course team to make an appointment to discuss and agree your Assessment Contract and the modules it will relate to.

    Your ‘Statement of Results’ email and information in ICON will say if an Assessment Contract is required.

  • What is agreed in an Assessment Contract?

    Completing work for reassessment and ongoing study can on some occasions be difficult to manage.

    To support you with this; part of the Assessment Contract is to agree the need for any additional support you may need to consider.
    (e.g. additional tutorials, specialist support from Student Support, staggered reassessment dates, etc.)

    For students in ‘Reassessment without Attendance’ status you may also be required to re-attend lectures and/or seminars in modules where you have reassessment to complete.

    You may also be set staggered deadlines for submission of reassessment items but these deadlines will not go beyond the formal deadline set by the University Assessment Board and which appears in your ‘Statement of Results’ in ICON.

  • Why are Assessment Contracts used?

    If you find yourself in a position where you have substantial reassessment or have experienced some difficulties with your academic study then An Assessment Contract is agreed between yourself and the course team to support you during this time.

    The Assessment Contract will clarify the support available to you and formalise any requirements to enhance your ability to study successfully.

  • How long will and Assessment Contract last?

    An individual contract will be in place until you have completed your submission of any reassessment or as agreed between you and the course team.
