Module Assessment Strategies
During the delivery of this module, self-learning is encouraged among students through the use of comprehensive on-line resources including voice-supported presentations, on-line notes, and formative assessments. Regular summative tests are used to encourage engagement with the module, monitor progress and provide feedback. This approach enables the student to take timely corrective action, in the event of failure to achieve the required standard, before the results significantly impact on the final grade.
