Assessment method

A range of assessment methods are used in the assessment of modules so that students are provided with a range of opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Specific types of assessment include: Practical tasks Essays Videos Reflective Blogs Laboratory reports Examinations (seen and unseen papers) Presentations While a good quality of personal performance is encouraged, it is not a focus of assessment in the practically based modules. Rather, issues of inclusion, entitlement and differentiation are embedded in many of the assessments, and students are required to plan and evaluate their own and other students’ teaching. Students learn how to present a balanced, evidenced argument through their formal written work, as well as via individual and group presentations. Within the final year, students will design and conduct their own independent project in a specialist area of their choice.
