Andrews, Matthew
Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, v20 n4 p121-128 2016
This paper examines the introduction at Oxford Brookes University of a Grade Point Average (GPA) scheme alongside the traditional honours degree classification. It considers the reasons for the introduction of GPA, the way in which the scheme was implemented, and offers an insight into the impact of GPA at Brookes. Finally, the paper considers what has been learnt at Brookes and the implications for the potential further roll-out of GPA across the UK.
