Support for examination boards

Examination boards bear a great deal of responsibility for securing the quality of assessments within the programme. At the same time, high-quality assessments are essential for good education. Risbo offers examination boards a range of tailor-made services to help them maintain or improve the quality of their services.

External member of the examination board 

A Risbo educational advisor can participate in the examination board as an external member, and can take part in the board's meetings. In this role we can work together actively and advise on securing the quality of assessments (in various phases of the assessment cycle), the "OER" and improving the assessment policy.

Support in the development of assessment policy 

We can also offer support in the development or review of the assessment policy. Risbo can fulfil a variety of roles here: an active role alongside the examination board through a number of meetings, working on new assessment policy, actually helping to write new assessment policy or the critical reviewing of new assessment policy. 

Assessment quality audit 

In preparation for a programme accreditation, we can also organise an (external) audit for programmes, aimed specifically at evaluating the assessment quality and securing it. The audit has a formative objective. Based on random sampling, Risbo can carry out an analysis of the quality of assessments in the programme. We can also investigate how the quality of assessments is secured within the programme, and where any aspects for improvement might lie. We report the outcomes of the audit to the programme, and make concrete suggestions for improvement.

Workshop assessment quality

Risbo also offers a workshop Assessment Quality for examination boards, to secure the quality of assessments in their various phases.
