Sir: I was fascinated to read the letter by Paul Clark, director of the Quality Assessment Division of the Higher Education Funding Council (28 March). There he stated that such assessment dealt with 'all aspects of the students' learning experience. Assessors during their visits meet representative groups of students.'

Those who visited us were so sensitive and careful in taking the students' opinions into account that these same students have written to Dr Clark to protest at the wholesale misrepresentation and distortion of their views in the assessors' report.

Yours faithfully,
