Both formative and summative assessment will be utilised across the course. Both types of assessment are relevant to students achieving the learning outcomes.
Formative assessment provides students with structure in their study to guide them through content and skill development as well as enable instructors and tutors to support their learning experience.
A wide variety of formative assessment will be used in the course to assist students to identify their learning needs as well as build on their strengths and provide instructors with opportunities to individualise support through individualised feedback.
While formative assessment does not carry a grade contributing to the final grade for any given module, it is essential for student learning and effective student support.
Summative assessment is designed to evaluate student achievement in relation to the learning outcomes of individual modules (and in turn, contribute to overall course learning outcomes) and all summative assessment contributes to the final grade.
You will receive feedback on summative assessments within 20 working days of submission date.
