ASKe was established as a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) based at Oxford Brookes University Business School (2005-10). It was set up with a £4.5 million award from HEFCE in recognition of good practice based on pedagogic research into aspects of assessment. The project focused on developing an evidence base and good practice to support HE communities in sharing understandings of assessment standards. ASKe's work now continues in conjunction with the Pedagogy Research Centre, based in the Faculty of Business.

ASKe produces an ongoing series of 1,2,3 leaflets which highlight some practical ways in which teaching staff can improve their students' learning. Each leaflet focuses on a piece of assessment-related research and clearly states how that research can be applied to teaching practice in three easy steps. There are others specifically for students which give clear, practical advice and encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning. For more information see the ASKe website.
