Retention policy on Teaching and Assessment Records

Retention policy on Teaching and Assessment Records

Policy and Guidelines

This policy [www.gla.ac.uk/media/media_105259_en.pdf] was introduced in 2007 and covers the retention of assessment and teaching material. It was updated in December 2015.

Every School/Research Institute is required to follow the Retention Schedule (RS) contained within the policy. The RS specify the types of assessed and teaching material covered, the retention period for each, the School/RI responsible for retention and the action required at the end of the retention periods.

Education Planning and Strategy Committee has confirmed that Schools/RIs are responsible for releasing information on assessment to students and guidance notes 1.1 and 2.1 of this policy provide more detail on this. Schools/RIs are encouraged to publicise this information in their student handbooks (guidance on student handbooks is available at www.gla.ac.uk/services/senateoffice/qae/progdesignapproval/centralguidanceonstudenthandbooks/).
