This workshop session set the context by exploring the debate on approaches to marking guidelines with a report on a brief local survey, and elicited approaches taken by the represented institutions. It considered the requirements of SENDA in any approach, as well as the standards set by professional bodies. There was a short report on the collaboration with academics from the Centre for the Development of Learning and Teaching, and group work allowed opportunities to consider different types of assessment, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of an inclusive learning approach. It also considered ways of publicising the adopted approach to both staff and students.

During the session delegates had an opportunity to experience the challenge of determining and balancing equal opportunity learning outcomes with the increasing demands for robust professional standards, through discussion, group work and a short activity.

By the end of the session delegates had:

• an understanding of the pros and cons and implications of different approaches to supporting students with SpLD through the marking of their work

• explored methods of incorporating support for dyslexic students into institution-wide guidelines for good assessment practice for all students.
