Assessment

There are no exams on this course. Instead, you'll be assessed through practical and written coursework at the end of each year and throughout the course. You’ll be given valuable verbal and written feedback as your work progresses.

You'll be assessed through a combination of diagnostic, formative and summative methods, and you're expected to participate reflectively in assessment. Self-evaluation is an aspect of a number of modules. You'll use the criteria given to reflect upon your development on the module. This, together with the assessment teams written assessment report, forms the basis at Levels 4 and 5 for discussion at assessment feedback sessions.

Formative assessment is built into all modules and is designed to provide you with feedback on progress and inform development. You're expected to maintain appropriate records of your work as it develops within each module, throughout all levels and to take part in regular tutorial, critique and seminar discussions regarding your own and others’ coursework. These sessions have a diagnostic function aimed at enabling you to meet the intended learning outcomes of each module.

Summative assessment provides a measure of achievement made in respect of performance in relation to learning outcomes. On completion of each level, you'll be required to submit a portfolio of your work on each module together with all supporting material. Assessment criteria reflect the learning outcomes for each level.
