Assessment strategies tend to be module based but with integrated themes wherever practicable. Jointly taught modules are organised so that students are assessed within the context of their individual programme of study. Assessment materials (assignment briefs etc.) are prepared to meet the needs of the Module and presented to students at interactive briefing sessions. Submitted elements and complete work is assessed and feedback provided to students. At regular tutorials and seminars group and individual progress is discussed as part of the strategy of on-going feedback during the course. Other features of assessment practice reflect development of professional and subject skills often using scenario based simulated work experience situations led by design projects requiring creative solutions and including reports that are presented or discussed individually with the ‘clients’. Traditional exams do not feature as a form of assessment. Forms of assessment that feature widely across the programme include essays, report writing, formal individual / group presentations, seminar presentations, scenario based time controlled tasks, practical tasks and individual research carried out in preparation for case study review and analysis.
