Quality Assuring Assessment Guidelines for Providers May 2007, p12

"Programme design, delivery and assessment are coordinated so as to facilitate learners to maximise the value of their assessments across the programme. i.e. the assessment of programme modules is integrated wherever possible and the needs of learners are considered when assessments are being scheduled."
