Assessment is considered an important part of the learning process. Students are assessed by a combination of end of module exams and course work assignments including research, reports, essays, presentations and practical assessments. Students undertaking a dissertation module will detail research in a project report. If you are studying on a foundation degree, students complete a work placement over several weeks and are assessed in the work place and a written assignment.
Formative assessment methods are diverse and include literature review-based essays, problem based assignments, oral and written reports, group work and placement assignments. Time constrained assessment includes closed and open book assessment, with both seen and unseen questions and tasks set. Assessment of practical skills is an integral part of particular subject specific modules.
