Retention policy on Teaching and Assessment Records
Policy and Guidelines
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/).
