Assessment method

Assessments are measured against learning outcomes and while these must be achieved, we offer flexibility in relation to how learners complete these objectives; we celebrate diverse and innovative approaches to evidencing learning. Practical units will often be evidenced through exported final cuts with preparatory documentation and personal reflections. Theory-based assessments are traditionally evidenced through extended writing projects.
