Postgraduate Assessment Criteria
The marking criteria (competence standards) for all SOAS postgraduate programmes draw upon the following minimum core criteria, which are applicable to the assessment of most or all assignments:
• understanding of the subject
• utilisation of proper academic [or other] style (e.g. citation of references, or use of proper legal style for court reports, etc.)
• relevance of material selected and of the arguments proposed
• planning and organisation
• logical coherence
• critical evaluation
• comprehensiveness of research
• evidence of synthesis
• innovation / creativity / originality
The language used must be of a sufficient standard to permit assessment of the above criteria.
These minimum core criteria form a part of the School’s core academic standards, applied to all coursework and as such they would not usually be subject to any modification, even as a reasonable adjustment for students with disabilities.
The minimum core criteria intentionally do not include standards concerning the presentational aspects of the work, such as spelling and punctuation in written assignments; nor do they include the criteria for certain specialist assignments (e.g. musical performance). Departments select additional criteria for certain assignments, as appropriate to the learning outcomes being assessed on that occasion. Such additional criteria are not standard to all modules, but they are part of the competence standards for the specific module and assignments.
The additional criteria could include:
• appropriate spelling / grammar / punctuation
• other skills as appropriate to the form of assessment (e.g. quality of accent, pronunciation, diction and other vocal qualities for an assessment involving speech)
• The demonstration of specific knowledge or abilities relevant to the assignment / examination (e.g. practical skills in archaeology or playing a musical instrument)
The department will provide students with information about any additional criteria which may be used to mark a particular assignment.
