Academic Freedom and Grading: The Role of Placement Providers

Quality in Higher Education Volume 17, Number 1, ISSN 1353-8322


Placement providers can be successfully involved in assessing students. This is demonstrated in the Monash University Faculty of Information Technology Cooperative Education Program. Students are thoroughly prepared for their placements and industry supervisors receive written assessment guidelines. Not one student has been awarded a pass grade by the programme director, when the host supervisor thought the student would not make it in the profession and should not pass the placement.
