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.

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|
|Portfolio of reading response papers||Portfolio of reading response papers (1300 words)||1-4, 7||August/September reassessment period|
|Essay||Essay (2,700 words)||1-7||August/September reassessment period|
|Tutorial participation||Individual presentation (10 minutes)||1-9||August/September reassessment period|
