On 10 September 2015 the President of UWAASA, Ray da Silva Rosa, emailed members a copy of his comments on the draft new University-Wide Policy on Assessment and an invitation to members to add their views. Professor Stuart Bunt, Vice President of the Academic Staff Association (and also Vice President of the NTEU) has since collated responses and his comments in the attached report. The draft policy will be presented for approval at Academic Council on Wednesday 7th October. The Association aims to have the very short and inadequate period of consultation extended. Your comments even at this stage would add support to this end.
