Assessment method

Performances/events Students regularly have opportunities to take part in performances/events, through which we can see growth and application of skills and knowledge. Regular tutorials We hold formal, and informal, tutorials throughout the degree. Each student can discuss their work with the module tutor or Programme Director during tutorials. We look at practical development, conceptual growth and future intentions. Presentations Presentations normally take place at the end of a module, exhibition or performance, in order to measure a student’s performance against assessment criteria. Process workbooks At level 4 & 5 students will document their process and practical work in a workbook which demonstrates their learning and individual pathway. At level 6, students write about their work in blogs, forums and short written tasks.
