The Tackling Racial Inequalities in Assessment in Higher Education: A Multi-Disciplinary Case Study report marks an important stage in the university’s commitment to eliminating the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) awarding gap. The analysis within the report helps to broaden our understanding of why there are outcome differences for specific assessment types for undergraduate students from different ethnic backgrounds. Importantly, the report challenges notions that lead to the harmful and counterproductive “deficit model”, which attributes any lack of academic attainment to issues associated with the student. This report considers and examines the implicit assumptions about undergraduate students and their learning that are often fundamental to the design of HE programmes.
