Assessment method

A wide range of assessment methods are utilised. In addition to traditional gobbet work, essays and in class tests, you will be assessed through bibliographic exercises, presentations – oral and PowerPoint based, at both individual and group level – creation of abstracts, reflective reports, in-house conference papers, article reviews, take-home exams, group wikis, creation of project plans and, of course, the dissertation. This variety of assessment helps develop skills in presenting material in a clear, professional and lucid manner, whether orally or in writing. This breadth of assessment type creates variety in the student experience, allowing you to explore the subject in different ways, and also embeds within the Classical Civilisation programme the specific employability skills desired, indeed required, by employers today.
