About the ARC
Assessment is an integral part of institutional education where alignment between teaching, learning, curriculum and assessment is essential. While gauging student learning outcomes, it provides informative support for the readjustment of teaching plans. As a teacher you will be aware that assessment affects the quality of student learning. Given effective design and appropriate implementation, assessment will drive students towards deeper learning approaches. The UGC-funded teaching development project - Enhancing Teaching and Learning through Assessment is being used to enhance assessment in higher education through a series of initiatives.

The Assessment Resource Centre (ARC) is one of the project's initiatives which aims at supporting on-going quality assurance and improvement of assessment. The establishment of the ARC provides both print-based and on-line support to all those involved in higher education and to facilitate sharing amongst worldwide teachers. While carrying a mission of strengthening and deepening inter-institutional collaboration, the ARC addresses a wide range of important issues related to assessment and examines core values through exploring, identifying, developing, facilitating, and supporting.

The ARC website was launched during the opening ceremony of the First International Conference on Enhancing Teaching and Learning through Assessment on 13th June, 2005. Around 400 conference participants from all over the world witnessed our official opening.
