This course makes use of a wide range of strategies to assess and give feedback. Summative assessment: You will be assessed in a variety of ways that measure your learning against the learning outcomes for each module. You will have up to 2 summative assessment points per module. You will be given the opportunity to book a 1:1 session with a module tutor after the assessment to receive feedback on the work submitted and grade awarded, as this will help identify areas for improvement and development. These forms of assessment have been chosen to give a range of methods for demonstrating knowledge and skills, to practice professionally relevant skills, and to build towards a portfolio of work. Formative assessment: Non-mark bearing (formative) assessment also forms an important part of the assessment process. Formative assessment includes all the feedback received from tutors and in peer-review sessions. It provides the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on work at various stages of each module. You can use this feedback to shape the work being submitted for summative assessment. Certain modules include assessments with a reflective component, where you will situate your development in relation to, for example, environmental sustainability, gender and sexuality, creative approaches to enterprise, ego and personal insight, responsible business in society, working with and for communities, emotional intelligence in business contexts, or mental and physical health and wellbeing. This is to ensure you are engaged with the whole system of business and entrepreneurial thinking, including its social and cultural elements and impacts, preparing you to be emotionally intelligent and future-conscious leaders in your chosen fields. Feedback: Feedback can occur at any time and can be verbal or written, individual or group, formal or informal, peer or tutor, summative or formative. It is a key part of the assessment strategy of the course. Tutor feedback will be given as part of all summative assessment and will refer to the strengths and weaknesses of your submitted work. All feedback is designed to help you on future modules and assignments. Assessment Methods are tailored for each module and reflect their particular Aims and Learning Outcomes. Assignments are designed to facilitate learning and nurture the development of knowledge, competencies and critically reflective thinking and practice Assessment methods will be clearly explained in module guides. Typical assessment methods for this course may include:
- Individual and group industry reports
- Presentations and pitches
- Critical evaluations
- Business case studies
- Individual and group reports
- Portfolios of production work
- Responses to live briefs
