Adjustment or scaling of marks

Are marks at UWA scaled or adjusted?

Adjustment of marks may be employed to ensure that:

  • the quality of marking across a group of students is consistent;
  • the grades awarded are a valid indicator of the achievement of a cohort; and
  • unforeseen circumstances that arise during the assessment period or in the assessment regime are rectified.

The marks that appear in the LMS are raw marks and students should expect to see some adjustment between their mark in the LMS and their final mark.
