This inclusive assessment pilot was introduced specifically to support students enrolled on the LLB, for whom the exam environment may be an obstacle to academic achievement. Normally this is due to a physical impairment, specific learning disability or mental health condition. This is currently running an inclusive assessment pilot for a second academic year in LLB Law programmes at Ulster.

Students with a reasonable adjustment recommendation including special examination conditions can now opt to do a ‘take-home’ exam, in modules that are assessed by examination. The ultimate objective is that students’ achievement should reflect academic potential and effort devoted to study, rather than barriers grounded in the exam environment specifically.

Mark and Stephen will co-present this innovative and collaborative practice to promote student wellbeing and achievement at Ulster at a NADP conference in April 2020.
