A Gold Medal for Teaching, or a Silver?

September 30, 2016

English universities will be awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance in the new Teaching Excellence Framework, a government initiative to assess universities based on measures including student satisfaction, retention and graduate employment, Times Higher Education reported. Results from the Teaching Excellence Framework will eventually be used to determine the amount by which individual universities are permitted to raise their fees. Originally the plan was to sort institutions using the categories “meets expectations,” “excellent” and “outstanding,” but those category names have been scrapped in favor of the medal system.
