Assessment & Examination

Students are assessed through written assignments and examinations to ensure that effective learning of the content in each unit has taken place.
Students are required to submit their written assignments which will be provided to them with complete instructions. This would include written reports, power point slides or poster and oral presentations. Students are given the opportunity to receive feedback on their performance in formative tasks before submitting assignments.

Students are given opportunities to take mock exams before the final examinations, which they will need to complete under timed examination conditions. Once an assignment has been submitted the tutor will provide written feedback and a grade. Students will have a reasonable opportunity to resubmit work if necessary to pass.
All assessments will be based upon the tutor’s academic judgments, but these will be verified by internal assessors. Students are given the opportunity to appeal the decisions.
