Can anyone help? I’m doing a little bit of research on the use of assessment exemplars in universities. I’ve found examples of students work (essays, assignments etc) and plenty of journal articles but I’m looking for examples of university guidelines or policy on how these exemplars should be used.

Can you anyone send me some examples from their own university or college? Leave a comment below or tweet me @chri5rowell…Thanks!
