...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|
|Participation||10||Must participate in 80% of assigned activities (safety net applies can only improve the overall mark)||1-6||Written comments or oral feedback (throughout the course)|
|Creative work of two elements: (1) a creative work; and (2) reflective commentary on the work||45||e.g., appropriation of an artwork or reuse of online content and a 1,000-word reflective commentary examining the work and its argument(s)||1-8||Written comments or oral feedback|
|Report||45||2,000-word individual report reflecting on research and interventions into the construction and development of knowledge via Wikipedia||1-8||Written comments; oral feedback available on request|
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|
|Attendance and Participation||See note below||1-6||NA|
