The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 is the sixth in the series of exercises conducted nationally to assess the quality of UK research and to inform the selective distribution of public funds for research by the four UK higher education funding bodies.
The results of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) are now available.
The results website publishes the outcomes of the the RAE from 25 Units of Assessment. This is to inform staff, students and the wider public about research performance at the University of Ulster.
The 2008 RAE outcomes are expressed differently than in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise. There is no longer a 1-5* rating scale. This has been replaced by a quality profile which identifies the proportion of output activity reaching each of four defined 'starred' quality levels.
