For details on each module’s assessment criteria, please consult the Module Catalogue within the School's web pages at http://www.swansea.ac.uk/som/. Typically, each module includes a written examination after the taught elements have been completed (so a 15 credit module taken in the first semester will be examined in December, a 15 credit module taken in the second semester will be examined in April) and coursework or continuous assessment consisting of a number of assignments. Assignments may be individual assignments, group assignments, presentations or business reports, for example. Students thus have every opportunity to develop key-skills in the use of Information Technology to gather, coordinate and present information, and also their confidence in presentation. Typically continuous assessment might count for approximately 30% of the total mark, with examinations weighted at 70% but the proportion can vary considerably between modules.
