How this Module is Assessed
In the tables below, you will see reference to 'ILO's. An ILO is an Intended Learning Outcome - see Aims and Learning Outcomes for details of the ILOs for this module.
A formative assessment is designed to give you feedback on your understanding of the module content but it will not count towards your mark for the module.
|Form of assessment||Size of the assessment (eg length / duration)||ILOs assessed||Feedback method|
|Essay||1,300 words||1-9||Students will be given written or oral feedback from the course instructor.|
|Mock exam- voluntary and peer-marked||1 hours and 30 minutes||1-10||Peer-to peer assessment and feedback will be provided. Peer-marking material and guidance will be made available on ELE; further guidance from tutor available on request|
A summative assessment counts towards your mark for the module. The table below tells you what percentage of your mark will come from which type of assessment.
|Coursework||Written exams||Practical exams|
...and this table provides further details on the summative assessments for this module.
|Form of assessment||% of credit||Size of the assessment (eg length / duration)||ILOs assessed||Feedback method|
|Essay||40||3,000 words||1-9||Written feedback and a numerical grade|
|Examination- seen 48 hours ahead||60||2 hours and 15 minutes||1-10||Written feedback and a numerical grade|
Re-assessment takes place when the summative assessment has not been completed by the original deadline, and the student has been allowed to refer or defer it to a later date (this only happens following certain criteria and is always subject to exam board approval). For obvious reasons, re-assessments cannot be the same as the original assessment and so these alternatives are set. In cases where the form of assessment is the same, the content will nevertheless be different.
|Original form of assessment||Form of re-assessment||ILOs re-assessed||Timescale for re-assessment|
|Essay||Essay (3,000 words)||1-9||August/September assessment period|
|Examination- seen 48 hours ahead||Examination (2 hours and 15 minutes)||1-10||August/September assessment period|
Students resubmitting their analyses will have to have attended a further inquiry and written a fresh analysis.
