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 or problem question||1,000 words||1-8||Individual written comments from lecturer and general feedback to cohort|
|Written outline of an evaluative opinion||500 words||1-8||Individual oral feedback from lecturer and general feedback to cohort|
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|
|Examination (take-home, open book)||67||2 hours intended duration (within a 24-hour submission window)||1-8||Result and written feedback, with discussion upon individual request|
|Individual presentation||33||10 minutes||1-8||Individual feedback and general feedback to cohort|
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|
|Examination Examination (take-home, open book)||Examination (2 hours take-home, open book; same as above)||1-8||August/September re-assessment period|
|Individual presentation||Individual presentation (10 minutes)||1-8||August/September re-assessment period|
