Assessment method

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose. We believe that all students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. In some final year modules, you can choose how you want to be assessed. You will have practical assessments for Drama, which could be in the form of presentations (performing in or directing a show, for example), painting a set, or designing lights or costumes. Theoretical assessments for both Drama and English could include exams, essays, presentations, reports, blogs, class tests, viva voces, portfolio work, analytical exercises, wiki entries or a dissertation. We aim to provide feedback on assessments within 21 days but your personal tutor and course lecturers will give regular constructive feedback as well. This is particularly useful in helping you to identify your strengths in addition to the areas where you may need to put in more work.
