Assessment methods

Knowledge is assessed throughout the course through a combination of formative methods (to provide you with constructive feedback to help you develop your skills and understanding) and summative methods (to assess your performance). Formative assessment takes the form of feedback on essays, reports, presentations and the research project, and is stressed from the beginning of the course. Formative assessment is delivered in part through informal assessment of work that does not contribute directly to your results (e.g. class debriefings on oral presentations). Summative assessment takes the form of unseen and open-book examinations and tests, presentations, project work and coursework.
