Heads of Department/Division have broad responsibility for the quality of the delivery of courses and educational programs under the department. Assessment of students and maintaining academic standards are important parts of this responsibility.
Schools have an overall responsibility to ensure that departments have the support and guidance needed to deliver high quality teaching, learning and assessment.
This section of the website provides information relevant for Deans and Heads about University policies and good practice in the assessment of students. These guidelines incorporate good practice at HKUST and have benefitted from benchmarking with sister institutions in Hong Kong and with international best practice.
