Formative assessment Each module contains at least one piece of practice or ‘formative’ assessment for which you receive feedback. Formative assessments are developmental and do not count towards your overall module mark. Summative assessment As you will be able to greatly personalise your degree by choosing elective modules to suit your needs, we cannot provide a precise break-down of your assessments. Typically for elective modules, your assessment will be designed to reflect the kind of activities you may be asked to do in the workplace, either individually or as part of a team. For example, report writing, data analysis, preparing strategies and presentations. You’ll also submit different types of coursework and sit written exams as part of the assessment for some modules. Here is the assessment breakdown for the core modules: First year (level 4) 50% coursework 25% written exams 25% oral assessment Second year (level 5) 80% coursework 15% written exams 5% oral assessment Third year (level 6) 65% coursework 35% oral assessment Apart from receiving feedback for your formative assessment, you will also receive feedback for your coursework and practical exams, and upon request, for your written examinations. Progression In order to progress to the next stage (from first to second year, and from second to third year), you will have to achieve 120 credits at the end of the academic year. For further information, including pass marks and progression rules, please see the Student Handbook.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
