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|
|Eassay||1,000 words||1-8, 10||Individual written feedback (with oral feedback upon 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||1,500 words||1-8, 10||Individual written feedback (with oral feedback upon request)|
|Examination (take-home, open book)||60||2 hours intended duration (within a 24-hour submission window)||1-8, 10||Individual written feedback (with oral feedback upon 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|
|Essay||Essay (1,500 words)||1-8, 10||August/September reassessment period|
|Examination (take-home, open book)||Examination (take-home, open book; same as above)||1-8, 10||August/September reassessment period|
**If a student achieves less than 40% in one essay but 40% or more in the other, the higher mark will be taken. If a student achieves less than 40% in both opinions, and is permitted to refer, they may submit a third essay (and will be capped at 40%). If a student defers in respect of one or both essays, they may submit one deferred essay and the mark awarded for it will be taken.
