Booth, S and Saunders, C and Yang, Embedding a robust evaluation culture through policy review, Studies in Learning, Evaluation, Innovation and Development, 9, (1) pp. 97-111. ISSN 1832-2050 (2012) [Refereed Article]



A critical element of embedding a robust evaluative culture in the university environment is a thorough review of student evaluation policies and processes. The University of Tasmania is currently undergoing a full review of its student evaluation policy, procedure and processes. The review process has been framed by the work of Gill and Saunders (1992) and Duck and Hamilton (2008). Findings thus far have identified gaps and similarities in student evaluation policy provisions both internally and nationally. The review process has also identified the importance of aligning internal student evaluation policies with the external public policy environment which is rapidly changing the way student evaluation is now approached in the higher education sector.
