Report 7: External examining in English

External examining


This guide responds to the current national reviewing of the role of the External Examiner from a discipline-specific viewpoint. The discussions informing this document were conducted, in part, to discover the extent to which discipline specific interests are recognised in the process of External Examining. It provides a summary of current concerns shared by External Examiners in English in their recent and continuing work, and in anticipation of changes mooted in the current review and beyond . It also provides, therefore, a discussion document, with recommendations, that English Departments and others might choose to draw on in Departmental, Faculty and Institutional reviews of the External Examiner’s role.
