Assessment at Manchester University

Our main goal centers around a comprehensive assessment strategy that incorporates both departmental and institutional data to obtain an effective picture of student learning on our campus, and to use what we learn to allocate resources and improve student learning. The greater focus is on the benefits to students; the stronger the academic program, the greater the student learning outcomes.
