Each semester, the Assessment & Progress Team sends schools a schedule listing modules with a formal assessment taking place during the next assessment period. The schedule is used to gather information about assessment requirements.
The University of Leeds will hold examinations/assessments across a number of periods during 2021. Which period examinations/assessments will take place in will depend on the student’s cohort.
For the academic year 2020/21, there is an expectation that most assessment will be online (i.e. digital and electronic submissions). However, some assessments will necessarily need to take place on campus (e.g. performances, laboratory work, etc.).
On the day
For on campus assessments, there are procedures in place to help deal with any unusual or special circumstances that may arise on the day of an assessment.
Ad hoc assessment procedure
Ad hoc assessments are formal University assessments, managed by the Assessment & Progress Team, that occur outside main assessment periods. Specific procedures relate to these assessments.
Ad hoc assessments: on the day of the assessment
Invigilators will bring signage to the venue, check student ID, collect completed scripts, and report absences, incidents and suspicious behaviour.
