(Photograph) - This table, compiled by The THES, lists the outcomes of the teaching quality assessment exercise carried out in English universities and colleges by the Higher Education Funding Council for England in seven subjects, column T (the outcomes of the first eight subject assessments were published on May 19). Against this are listed the results of the 1992 research assessment exercise, carried out by the Universities Funding Council, HEFCE's predecessor, for similar departments, column R.
Departments awarded both 5 for research and excellent for teaching are in red type. In certain areas, particularly geology, the departments assessed for teaching and research are not identical. Where departments are found to be unsatisfactory in the teaching assessment exercise, they are revisited. Those marked U are those awaiting their revisits. This information can also be found on our Internet service, where the previously published assessment results for England and those for Scotland and Wales are also included. As judgements become available for other subject areas, they will be added to the tables on our web pages: http://thesis.newsint.co.uk
