Access to Fair Assessment Policy

Introduction

This policy covers the arrangements for fair assessment for students taking any course at The DJ School. Students are made aware of the existence of this policy and have open access to it on paper in a folder from The DJ School and on The DJ School website at:

www.thedjschool.org/about

All tutors teaching at The DJ School are made aware of the contents and purpose of this policy. This policy is reviewed annually and may be revised in response to feedback from students, tutors, and external organisations.

Policy Statement

Every student taking a course at The DJ School will be assessed fairly. That means that:

  1. Assessment will be a test of what the student knows, what they understand, and what they are able to do.
  2. For any particular course, every student will be assessed using the same overall set of exercises and criteria.
  3. Assessments will be standardised across different tutors and classes to ensure that all students have been judged against the same standards.

Procedure to appeal by students

If a student feels that they have not been assessed fairly then they should use the Appeals & Complaints Procedure to appeal the assessment decision of their tutor. However, the first step is always to discuss the situation with the tutor concerned.
