The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or ‘formative’ assignments.
Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments, which are graded and count towards the overall module grade. Assessment methods include a range of coursework assessments, such as: essays, portfolios, presentations, and a major Dissertation project.
There are no formal timed examinations.
A typical assessment pattern for the course would be as follows.
Digital Editing Project:
- Position paper
- Digital project
Research Approaches in the Humanities and Arts:
The New Humanities:
- Conference paper
History and the Media:
- Essay based on primary sources
- Individual presentation
- Negotiated thematic essay
- Research proposal
You will receive detailed feedback on both formative and summative assessments. Feedback is intended to support learning, and you are encouraged to discuss it with personal academic tutors and module tutors as appropriate.
We will provide you with feedback on formal coursework assessments 20 working days after submission.
