Marking, College Framework

The College Marking Framework is an important reference point for setting and maintaining academic standards across the College. It provides guidance for all assessment practices and promotes consistency across taught programmes with the aim of enhancing the student experience of assessment.

The generic College Marking Criteria provide a frame for the setting of learning outcomes, and support Faculties and Assessment Sub-boards in refining their Faculty, discipline or assessment-specific marking criteria.


A new College Marking Framework, including the College Marking Criteria, was endorsed by the Academic Standards Subcommittee (ASSC) and approved by College Education Committee (CEC) in November 2021. The framework was noted for information by Academic Board in December 2021 and is being piloted during the academic year 2022/23.
