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|
|Short essay||1,500 words (conduct a critical analysis of the compliance with contract law of online terms and conditions provided by a company selected by the module convenor)||1-12||Written/oral|
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|
|Short report||30||1500 words (choose online terms and conditions of a UK-based company and analyse their compliance with contract law, advising the company whether its policy should be changed and how)||1-12||Written|
|Examination||70||1 hour 30 minutes||1-12||Written|
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|
|Short report||Coursework (1500 words)||1-12||August/September reassessment period|
|Examination||Examination (1 hour and 30 minutes)||1-12||August/September reassessment period|
– If the exam is failed, and the module cannot be condoned, the student will be capped at the pass mark after re-examination (40%)
