Assessment Plans

Using assessment plans, education and training providers can design and develop high-quality knowledge and skills programmes, define their intent, measure impact and improve quality.


1 / Assessment Plan Types

Use different assessment plan types for strategic, organisational and curriculum planning. Assessment plans are used to easily identify curriculum intent and impact.

2 / Programme Design

Assessment plans can be developed for each programme of study. The plan owners and collaborating staff can identify the objectives and outcomes that will be delivered.

3 / Assessment Plan Measures

Assessment plan measures set out the curriculum intent – what will be delivered to learners, what they will be expected to know or be able to do, and why.

3 / Outcomes Mapping

Assessment plan outcomes can be mapped to multiple assessment plans to demonstrate cross-curriculum mapping and to conduct a curriculum gap analysis.
