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|
|weekly class presentations focussed on a set question, task and key readings||1,500 words||1,2,4,7,8||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|
|Research essay||100||4,000 words||1,2,3,5,6,7,8||Oral and 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|
|Research Essay||Research Essay (4,000 words)||1,2,3,5,6,7,8||August/September reassessment period|
The module comprises a formative and a summative assessment. Where you are unable to deliver the formative assessment (class presentation), you will complete a written discussion equivalent to a 1,500 word presentation. Where you have been referred/deferred for the research essay, an equivalent essay is required, constituting 100% of the module mark.
