Leeds Beckett University is embarking on a new cycle of Periodic Review after our wholesale curriculum review in 2012. Reviewing our current academic activity in relation to our curricular practice showed that work still needed to be done in several key areas. For example, improving the writing of levelled intended learning outcomes (ILOs), integrating our graduate attributes (GAs) - Enterprise, Having a Global Outlook and Digital Literacy - more fully into course and module outcomes and ensuring staff understand the nature and scope of the different assessment domains which enhance opportunities for full student learning from our programmes. To address these issues, a short life working group (SLWG) focussed on modernising our existing taxonomy of assessment domains (Link 1) which had been well-used by our staff for at least 20 years. This paper focuses on i) consideration of the benefits of the existing taxonomy ii) the broader context and reasons for modifying our existing taxonomy of assessment domains, iii) the approach, process and activity of the SLWG), iv) planned future work streams to build on our work in progress. Keywords: Taxonomy of Assessment Domains, Graduate Attributes, Learning Outcomes
