Student Policies and Regulations

Assessment Handbook (Microcredentials)

The Assessment Handbook (Microcredentials) outlines The Open University’s policies relating to the assessment tasks you may have to complete as part of your course and explains the outcomes and/or result you will receive. This Handbook provides you with the general rules and regulations for completing and submitting your assessment task and explains the result grades we use, while separate course-specific information on your microcredential website will tell you about the individual assessment task for your microcredential.

This Handbook also contains an appendix which provides information about The Open University’s statement on Plagiarism.
