Students as Partners in Assessment (SaPiA)

Students as Partners in Assessment (SaPiA)

Engaging students as partners in their learning and student experience is important as it gives them a sense of ownership and academic staff can benefit from their insight.

Student partnership is a broad area and can include student participation in university committees, module and programme development, feedback processes and more.

Arising from the TEU's existing focus on assessment design and academic integrity, in 2020 we undertook some work in the area of student partnership in assessment. This was funded in part by quality improvement (QUID) funding from the DCU Quality Promotion Office. It drew on existing work from the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning and the National Student Engagement Programme.
