Review of the Teaching Excellence Framework Year 2

A review of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in its first 'test' year, covering the assessment period of winter 2016–17 that resulted in the June 2017 awards.

The report reviews the results, impact and cost of making submissions from a survey of Universities UK members, and explores issues for consideration in future iterations. It finds that there appears to be general confidence in the TEF's ability to raise the profile of teaching and learning; however there is concern about how the assessment framework defines and measures teaching excellence, and the viability of subject-level assessment.
